Rossese di Dolceacqua, Danila Pisano '18 (Liguria, Italy)

Danila Pisano took over the family estate in 1990 and received organic certification in 1996. The vineyards themselves are not young, with some of the terraces aging back to 1931. She has not had to plow or fertilize her vineyards for the last three years, and the cover crop is lush and filled with lovely flowers. Her plots are spread over several hills, and even include a sandy section that has many un-grafted vines that have been resistant to phylloxera. Light to medium bodied with crushed flowers and wild red berry fruit and spice. Serve slightly chilled.
