The Albana, the most prestigious native grape of Romagna, has always been cultivated by the Codronchi counts, the old landowners where the Monticino Rosso Factor is now standing. To obtain this vintage wine we make a careful selection of grapes, harvested exclusively by hand, in small cassettes, in mid-September, depending on the seasons. Only when the bunch is perfectly ripe is harvested in several steps, depending on the maturation state.
