Dolceacqua

2016

From Rossese vines up to one hundred years old planted over clay and limestone in the famed Arcagna vineyard, high in the hills above Dolceacqua. The wine making here is old-school and the grapes are fermented with whole bunches for a fortnight before being foot stomped and left to spend a year in old casks. It is a wine that feels resolutely Mediterranean, pairing bright, sun kissed fruit with a lifted, herbaceous note which calls to mind the garrigue of these hills. Reflecting this cooler vintage, this is striking in its perfume and finesse.
