Santa Lucia Bischero

A delightful drinking wine from the native Sangiovese of Emilia-Romagna, the Bischero comes from Lucia’s youngest vineyards and sees no oak aging, only time in stainless steel before being bottled.

Wine Appellation
Sangiovese Emilia-Romagna
Available in: Maine
Grown: Italy
The wedge-shaped northern Italian province of Emilia-Romagna lies just above Tuscany, and south of Piedmont. The wines of Emilia-Romagna are generally less well-known in export markets. It is a relatively big producing region (actually 4th-biggest in Italy on total volume), with around 75% of wines being red, though less than 10% being DOC or DOCG. Grape varieties include Malvasia, Trebbiano, Albana and Ortrugo for whites, with Barbera, Sangiovese and Bonarda common for reds. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are increasingly planted, and the indigenous reds are being joined by more and more Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, in blends and varietal IGT wines.
