This is a classic, minerally red from Danila Pisano who tends her vines in Western Liguria, northwestern Italy.
Tasting Notes: Young and bright there is ample spice and florality here: cardamom, thorny rose and violet, crushed and smoked paprika. Delicious and lighter than typical Rossese though carried by its classic plummy middle and mineral lift.
Vinification: From Louis/Dressner's wonderful website:
"Danila Pisano founded her estate in 1990 with the goal to restore her ancient family estate of vineyards and olive groves. Believing in traditional methods, she immediately began to work organically and has been certified since 1996. She works exclusively with the Rossese grape, a variety native to Western Liguria. Vineyards are at an altitude of 150-250m with southwest exposures. Vines are terraced and supported by the traditional stone walls; this promotes ventilation and keeps the grapes healthy."
