Le Rocche Malatestiane is a wine cooperative that was partially formed by two existing wineries joining forces in 1994. The co-op is named after the Malatesti family who played an important role in Rimini history. The expertise of 12 hundred members, as well as well tended 2,200 acres of vineyards, makes this co-operative the excellent winery it is today.
Nobody knows from where the name Cagnina comes, but this wine has been made since the 13th century exclusively in the Emilia Romgna Region, just south of Venice, in Italy.
"Adesso," which means "now" in Italian, is a wine that is easy to love.
Tasting notes: Pleasantly sweet, Adesso’s berry aromas and flavors are impossible to resist. Low in alcohol, Adesso is a fun and easy to drink red wine for those who prefer their wines “off dry”.
