Vecchia Romagna Carta Negra

Written by feltedhat on . Posted in Brandy Post

Visiting Italy the very wide spread Vecchia Romagna deserves a post. I left the classico on the shelve and wnt for the Carta Negra directly. Money whise there was not much diffrence though.


According to my perceiption, this is the classic Italian Brandy and it is – and this I find great – very widely known and very easy to get, even in Switzerland.

The aroma is very pleasant and extremely fruity. But taste whise it does not deliver what I am used to from a Solera Gran Reserva. Depth and complexity are missing. It is not that it tastes bad, but compared to “regular” Soleras it is less expresive and a little agressive on the palate even with the 38% which lays below the average 405 of the Spaniards.

PS: Sorry for the bad picture – bottle was empty before I even could take a picture of it… đŸ™‚

      I do not know of a carta negra. Sometimes they use words like that for special/limited Brandy. Do you know the Bodega or maybe some more info about this Brandy? Or do you mean the Capa Negra?
