Why we love it
The Rossese di Dolceacqua is a red wine very little known outside the region of production due to its very small production. Made with Rossese grapes, grown in the medieval town of Dolceaqua, Liguria, this is a lovely wine, with an elegant bouquet with fruit and floral notes, on the palate it is light, fresh, with a nice acidity and very smooth with a lasting finish.
The artisan who made it
The Ramoino is a family run winery now at the third generation, growing the typical grapes of the Ponente Ligure, Rossese, Pigato and Vermentino all DOC wines. The Ramoino family believes that outstanding wines start in the vineyards with the perfect combination of sun, soil and passion. There is not much land in Liguria, closed in between the sea and the mountains and all vineryards are located in steep hills where everything has to be done manually, from harvesting to carrying the grapes to the winery resulting in perfect grapes for outstanding wines.
