symbol

Quince
The quince was once the mainstay of the small farm economy. Grandmothers’ preserves were a fixture on sideboards, quince marmalades gladdened holiday afternoons, and no meal table was without them to perfume the room.
The quince has tart flesh and a significant tannin content; when cooked, it is utterly delicious. La Berta is its home. And the rustic sangiovese grape, with its fine balance of wild berryfruit, acidity, and supple tannins, embodies Romagna’s agricultural traditions.
