|Appellation/Sub-Region||Riviera Ligure di Ponente Rossese DOC|
Halfway down the coast of the western “wing” of Liguria (the region stretching out on either side of Genoa), an arm of the Alps curves to meet the Mediterranean around the town of Albenga. The vineyards of La Vecchia Cantina occupy limestone, sand, and clay soils of the lower slopes northwest of the town. The bright minerality of their wines reflects the sea shore just down the hill. The Calleri family’s holdings extend only four hectares, and their wines draw only from their own vineyards. Rossese is the signature red grape of Liguria, traditionally paired with Mediterranean delicacies such as anchovies. La Vecchia Cantina’s rossese stays on the skins for 4-5 days in stainless steel tanks. Light and bright, with red fruit and spice, this is a refreshing red to drink slightly chilled.
