Le Rocche Malatestiane

Le Rocche Malatestiane

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.
Pagadebit was a name given to the Bombino grape in years past. In the local Italian dialect, Pagadebit meant debt payer -- a name that evolved because this grape is exceptionally hardy and can produce even in off years.

Tasting notes:  This is a fresh light wine with a pleasant lemony finish. Try it with a delicate fish, or just sip it before dinner.
