Rossese de Dolceacqua, Testalonga - 2021

Item # 26210 750mL

Antonio Perrino is a determined, focused producer. Liguria is a difficult region to cultivate anything. Rossese, an obscure varietal native to western Liguria, however thrives on the region's steep, terraced vineyards. Its charming profile beguiles with wild floral aromas, redolent of violets, roses and red currants. One of a few red wines that go well with fish, it especially pairs well with crawfish and langoustines, also calamari and octopus. A fine partner to cured meats as well.

Glossary

Liguria

While perhaps more famous for its topless beaches, Liguria also produces some truly outstanding and unusual white wines. As the region is dominated primarily by coastal villages, it’s not surprising that the typical Liguria diet is rich in seafood - and as such, snappy, high-acidity whites are quite the M.O. One notable exception is the wine made from the idiosyncratic Pigato grape, which yields a softer, more lush wine with distinctive notes of herbs and (we’re not being tongue-and-cheek...
