Dolceacqua, Liguria



From vines of Rossese up to one hundred years old planted over clay and limestone high in the hills above Dolceacqua. The grapes are trodden by foot, fermented as whole bunches for a fortnight and pressed slowly before a year of rest in old casks, just as they always have been. From a cooler vintage, as ever this feels resolutely Mediterranean, pairing sunkissed fruit with a lifted, herbaceous note which calls to mind the garrigue that lines these hills, and a brightness that speaks of sunshine and limestone. A wine of impeccable balance, history suggests it will reward drinkers for decades to come.
