The Albana vineyard from which the Sabbia Gialla comes was planted about 30 years ago by Don Antonio and is the result of a very careful mass selection of old Albana di Romagna clones personally chosen by him and his father.
The name Sabbia Gialla is not the result of pure fantasy: the Albana vineyard grows on the Marzana, emerged bubbles of yellow sand of Pleistocene origin that unmistakably characterize the soils of these hills, a coastal area of river delta a million years ago.
In spring, the clusters of each Albana vine bloom at different times, so ripening takes place at different times during the harvest. The personal interpretation of Andrea and Lucia dell’Albana results in a repeated series of harvests and as many vinifications to try to harvest the grapes at the right stage of ripeness. The number of harvests varies according to the trend of the single vintage and usually in the latest harvests the grapes are attacked by Botrytis Cinerea, the noble rot of the wine world. Each harvest is vinified individually in steel tanks and macerates for two days on the skins to extract color and tannin, characteristic of the grape.
“Sabbia Gialla represents one of those love at first sight wines. It will make you and those around you fall in love. Suggested for conquests of all kinds and in heavenly combination with tortellini in broth. Seeing is believing.” The GUS team
