Note di degustazione

The denomination IGT Rubicone coincides with the geographical area identified with Romagna: a territory as vast as it is varied, whose definition lies not so much in politics as in history and culture.

It is precisely in the past that we glimpse the origins of the choice of this name, Rubicon, to unite, and in a certain sense to recount, this land, which in 49 BC, was the scene of one of the most important upheavals in the course of history: arriving at the borders of Rome, which coincides exactly with the course of the River Rubicon, Julius Caesar decided to take the fateful step that led to the civil war that put an end to the Roman Republic and inaugurated the imperial era.

The extraordinary fame attained by this enterprise, immortalised, between myth and reality, by the famous phrase "Alea iacta est” (the die is cast) - words attributed to Caesar by Suetonius in his De Vita Caesarum – later gave life to a bitter controversy for the location of the real Rubicon.

With the respective springs placed in the same area of the hills, it is indeed more than ever easy to confuse the course of the Pisciatello (also known as Urgone) and the Fiumicino, waterways that run in parallel valleys and then flow into the Adriatic near Gatteo. From the Early Middle Ages to the first decades of the 20th Century, numerous human and natural interventions have also contributed to change the course of the two rivers, further complicating a definitive solution to the dispute, complicated still further by an incredible number of sources supporting one or other of the theses.

If Caesar's exploit then becomes a further element to enrich the fiery, passionate identity debate in Romagna, it nevertheless offers a precious distinctive element for the entire territory, its prestige, despite everything, can happily be shared and raised as a boast.

The denomination Rubicone IGT therefore becomes a symbol of this proud common heritage, which arises from history to filter through to our daily, popular culture, shaped by symbolism, tradition, but above all perfumes and flavours.

Larone arose from the desire to pay homage to the oenological tradition of Romagna, ennobling it not only with innovative winemaking techniques, but also clothing it with a garment of great value, all the more rare for a product of this name.

The elegance of its image is perfectly reflected in the glass of the taster, offering in its singularity an unforgettable sensorial experience. The aromatic profile of Larone is in fact drawn from the perfect harmony of four types of grape, balanced in an unprecedented blend in which the King Sangiovese (50%) is enhanced by combination with two impetuous native vines (Malbo Gentile 25%, Centesimino 15%) and the spicy touch of Syrah (10%)
