As Rossese red wines go, this is pretty special. In fact as any wines go, this is pretty special. A rare light, smoky, Pinot Noir-esque red from grapes grown over 400 metres up in the hills above the pretty medieval town of Dolceacqua. The small plot was planted over 60 years ago, but coming to the end of its productive life. As a last hurrah, Altavia made a single-vineyard riserva bottling for the first and only time. In 2013, this vineyard was grubbed and replanted.
Only 2,000 bottles were made. The wine spends a year in old French oak barrels, then a few years ageing in bottle before release. A sublime rarity, and a must-try.
