Raffaella has chosen to enhance typical grape varieties of Romagna and specifically of Bertinoro: in her vineyards you can only find Sangiovese and Albana. These grapes achieve their full potential thanks to love and attention from Raffaella, respectful of the surrounding environment.


Raffaella Bissoni produces high quality wines with controlled and warranted designation of origin (DOCG Romagna) and controlled designation of origin (DOC Romagna).
Wines have officially been certified as organic since the 2016 harvest.


The Bissoni winery ethos is very simple, there are no secrets: in order to achieve maximum quality, yields are kept low, between 60 and 80 quintals per hectare. Grapes are hand-picked at the right moment, with care and delicacy. Thanks to this special care and to the generosity of soils, excellent grape quality enables wine production without invasive intervention. Wines follow local tradition and at the same time mirror the personality of Raffaella, standard bearer of sustainability and respect for Nature.


Sangiovese is the most famous wine made in Romagna that, together with Tuscany, is the cradle of this grape variety. Sangiovese was the first wine of Romagna to obtain the controlled designation of origin (DOC In Italian) on 9th July 1967. The Bissoni winery produces four versions of Sangiovese, all of them made from 100% Sangiovese grapes: the young and fruity "Girapoggio"; the rich, mature and persistent "Bissoni Riserva"; the special reserve aged in new French oak barrels "Vigna Colecchio" and the unique Red Passito made from Sangiovese grapes, late harvested only in the most suitable vintages.


Albana, wine exclusive to the Romagna region, was the first white grape variety to obtain the controlled and warranted designation of origin (DOCG in Italian) in 1987. "Albana Bissoni" is a rare gem on the Italian wine scene. The Albana vineyard on the Bissoni estate is located in a foggy area next to the woodlands, where ripe berries are transformed by the so called "Noble rot", the rare Botrytis Cinerea. This is the same rot that makes the renowned wines of Sauternes so great and complex. Grapes are left to dry on the vines and berries are picked one by one with countless successive selections during the ideal ripening moment. This means that the resulting wine has a very limited production but is of truly outstanding quality.


Fresh wine, young but always intense, laden with the aromas of cherries and small red berries, fine and balanced. To savour its complete expression, open 2-3 years after harvest.


An important, complex, oak-aged wine with hints of maraschino cherry, red fruits and spices. It can be fully appreciated at least 3 years after vintage, but a few years later its expression is even more complete as it is conceived for long ageing.


The "Vigna Colecchio" reserve wine is considered the expression of the true potential of Sangiovese. The long ageing process, in new French oak barrels, enriches it with an array of fruity notes of plums, black cherries and blackberries, without weighing down the variegated bouquet. These aromas find harmony with the tannic features of Sangiovese and generate complexity and depth. To be savoured at least 4 years after harvest. Age-worthy.


Albana Passito made with grapes dried on the plant. Botrytis Cinerea, known as Noble Rot, bestows aromas of saffron, honey, dried figs, dates and apricot jam upon the wine. The tannins achieve a complexity rarely found in white grape varieties and, at the same time, prevent the wine from becoming too sweet, resulting in elegance and finesse.
Best served with mature and blue cheese or foie gras, or even with chocolate tart and tea biscuits. To be savoured at least 3 years after vintage.


Red passito wine made from late harvest Sangiovese grapes, made only in few selected vintages. Perfect matched with chocolate, mature cheese, game, or alone as a meditation wine. To be savoured at least 3-4 years after harvest. Age-worthy.
