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 (former the grape, latter the town).
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.
