Details

Rossese Rosso Se Selvadolce 2016, natural wine, no added sulphites, distinguished full bodied, sun soaked wine, full of soft ripe cherry and berry fruits. A wonderfully intriguing and delicious red wine, bursting with ripe fruits and texture. Liguria maybe doesn't have the same fame for its wines as the nearby Langhe Hills but the graoe Rossese can give such beautifully textural wine without the big tannins and structure of Nebbiolo. Because of the topography of the rea, steep slopes and unattainable hillsides, Liguria also lends itself to small artisan wineries and natural production. Selvadolce is one in the top draw, superb wines with real personality.

When I tasted these wines from Selvadolce, I was taken aback with surprise and delight. I knew there was great wine in Liguria but probably not this great. Both red and white have incredible depth and length of flavour. The Red Rossese is a great Barolo alternative, has the ripe fruits and fullness in the mouth but without Barolo's sometimes overbearing structure and tannins. Selvadolce, is a small biodynamic farm in Bordighera on the coast of Liguria, and is the work of Aris Blancardi. It is a family story – the main production being a flower farm that has been around for more than a century on the Bordighera Hills. After working as a horse veterinarian, Aris came back to the family business, taking over his father’s work and improved the farming practices by looking for alternative ways to grow flowers. He learnt the basics of biodynamic farming in the nearby Langhe, then with Nicholas Joly from Savennieres. He was convinced to start making wine from some old plantings made by his Grandfather and some new vines of Rossese. From the start, he had no guidance and so worked according to instinct and by watching nature and so natural wines following Biodynamic principles is what he made.

Today Aris looks after 7 hectare of vineyards that are strongly influenced by the sea and the powerful mistral winds. The vines are comprised of Pigato, Vermentino and Rossese that he planted at 600m altitude onsandy soil, close to the inland village of Dolceacqua. Both red and white are full, intriguing, very fresh, complex and so purely scented of the Italian Riviera that you feel like you are drinking sunshine. With the famous dishes of the region, Tuna, Capers, Tomatoes, Olive Oil and of course Pesto, these wines are simply stunning.
