The first vintage of this wine is made up of equal parts of local variety Bianchetta and a mix of around a dozen hybrids which Alex planted together some six hundred metres above sea level at the foot of the Dolomites. Each half spent five days on the skins, before being pressed off to tank to rest until the following spring when it was put into bottle with a concentrated must made from passito grapes to cause a second fermentation. There is a real delicacy and freshness to be found here, with gentle notes of alpine flowers, minerals and spring water which speak of its mountain home.
