Altavia Rossese di Dolceacqua Superiore Riserva 2012
We've been Britain's specialist importers of rare Ligurian wines since 2012, and are proud of our small range of wines from this unheralded little Italian region. Here you have a genuine rarity, and one-off. It's Liguria's pre-eminent red, Rossese di Dolceacqua.
Made by top producer Altavia from a single vineyard for the first and only time in 2012, before this old, low-yielding plot was grubbed up to plant another variety. Altavia gave the vineyard one last hurrah with this limited edition Riserva, to the extent of just 2,000 bottles. Wine spends 7 months in old French oak barrels, then several years ageing in bottle before release. A sublime rarity, and a must-try.
