The history of the Longanesi grape comes from a happy intuition by Antonio Longanesi, nicknamed "Bursòn". In the mid-50s the Longanesi family passed to modern viticulture by multiplying this wild vine and guaranteeing its survival. In fact, in 1956, the first vineyard of Uva Longanesi was planted. The birth of the "Bursôn" wine as it is known today dates back to 1996, when Sergio Ragazzini and his friend Roberto Ercolani (winemaker), both from Bagnacavallo, decided to create a "great red wine of the plain". This vine and its wine are so indissoluble linked to the territory of Bagnacavallo and the surrounding Romagna plain.
