Agricultural tradition of Romagna.

As a link between mainland Italy and northern Italy, a bastion of civilization between barbarians from the north and the Roman empire south, Romagna’s heritage has been shaped by all of these peoples, including the Celts. It developed a unique identity of its own, especially reflected in its flora, fauna, animal and extraordinary farming skills.

The ultimate symbol of this identity is the Caveja, an iron pin that jingles from the yoke, following the movement of cattle. Decorated with allegorical images and iron rings similar to the “torchi” — twisted Celtic jewelry — were made by skilled craftsmen and blacksmiths, tempered multiple times, giving each Caveja a unique sound and form.

Even the local varietal of choice – Sangiovese – is a Roman legacy to Romagna. To complete the spectrum and represent Romagna’s market, there are also local varietals for white wines – Albana, Trebbiano and Pagadebit – and red wines such as Cagnina.
