Albana is an old white variety grown almost exclusively in the Colli Albani of Emilia-Romagna. Perhaps its greatest claim to fame is that it, as Albana di Romagna, was the first white wine to be promoted to DOCG status, a decision that shocked a great many people. This grape variety is used mostly in the production of dry white wine but it is as a passito or sweet wine that the grape has shown the most promise. Vinified dry, it makes a sturdy if not ethereal white but its thin but resistant skins give it superior ability for drying for dessert wine production.
