Albana

The history of Albania is closely interwoven with that of Romagna and its roman origins. Cited first by Marco Terenzio Marrone, according to some sources it appears to come from the Colli Albani, according to other derives its name directly from its color (albus in latin). It is told that the empress Galla Placidia considered them to be worthy of "being drinked in gold", hence the legendary origin of the name of the place that might be the area of election of the grape.
