Colli Piacenti - white sparkling wine from Reggio Romagna.
I drank this simple, dry sparkling wine with my friend Andrea Prampolini. He had lost his father a few days before and I was in town for the funeral. He told me that the wine was from his mother’s region, Reggio Romagna in northern Italy. It’s a region known for making wine 2000 years before Christ! It tasted a bit like cider. Nothing extravagant. Simple and solid.
I accompanied the wine with some freshly made tortelli verdi, Tortelli alla zuccha and tortellini Verdi condotti al tartuffo. They’re like small ravioli a and tortellinis. Delicious. I also had some erbazzone, a local pastry filled with spinach or erbette and ricotta.
