A traditional Italian brandy, produced since 1820. This black-labelled version is made in Bologna from reserves laid down in the 1950s. Aged for 3 years in oak with a smooth mellow flavour, with hints of wood, vanilla and caramel.
Emilia-Romagna is the north-eastern region of Italy, home to two historic regions of ‘Emilia’ & ‘Romagna’.
Its capital and largest city is Bologna, famous for its beautiful buildings, architecture and churches dating from the Roman period. The University of Bologna is the world's oldest university, founded in 1088.
On a slightly more modern front, Emilia-Romagna is the automotive centre of Italy. Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Maseratis are all made in the region. However, it is also the birth place of some of the most traditional and well-known Italian foods: Parma prosciutto ham, balsamic vinegar (only made in the cities of Modena and Reggio-Emilia) and Parmigiano Reggiano (parmesan cheese).
