The Rossese of Bio Vio is grown just outside the only appellation dedicated to this varietal (Rossese Di Dolceacqua DOC). Hence the wine is labelled with the more generic Riviera Ligure Di Ponente DOC, but "not all bad comes to harm" as the Italians would say themselves. The lighter soils of this area as opposed to the iron rich clay soils of Dolceacqua next door, create a more femminine, subtle, elegant, and delicate expression of the Rossese grape. A varietal already known for drinking like a central Burgundy red (Mercurey), this version becomes a wine of extreme elegance and olfactory lift, showcasing beautifully fresh red fruits, roses, and spice. With its low tannins and gentle demeanor, this wine highlights even better the seafood pairing capabilities that Rossese normally and traditionally possesses.
