2018 Rossese di Dolceacqua Superiore “Fulavin”

Tenuta Anfosso

Moving inland from the Ligurian coast, the terroir changes as you enter the foothills of the Alps. Here in the Rossese di Dolceacqua appellation, a few miles from the French border, vineyards are planted on narrow stone terraces and worked by hand, and the Rossese is richer and more structured than in coastal Italy. Alessandro Anfosso is the sixth generation to tend his family’s vines here, some of which are approaching 150 years old. His Fulavin bottling is a lovely pale cranberry color with a bit of anise on the nose. The wine offers a seductive red berry note, but also a savory balsamic element, balanced by a grippy, mineral backbone.

About Liguria

map of Liguria

A long, crescent-shaped sliver of mountainous coastline ranging from the French border in the west to that of Tuscany in the east, Liguria is a region of unrivaled Mediterranean charm. This applies not only to its colorful seaside villages and carefree, welcoming people, but also to the wines it produces—crisp whites and light reds designed to be quaffed with locally caught seafood.

Viticulture has thrived along these coastal hillsides since Etruscan times. Ancient stone terraces line the steep slopes all along the Riviera, many abandoned while others still host olive trees, lemon trees, and of course, the vine. What Liguria lacks in acreage, it makes up for in diversity and originality: home to numerous indigenous grape varieties, it produces wines of infectious local character.

The hallmarks of Ligurian wines are fragrant aromatics and lively freshness. Whites from grapes like Vermentino and Pigato capture the pervasive flavors of wild herbs and citrus with a sea-breeze salinity, while the rare reds from Rossese, among others, have a brightness of flavor that allows them to complement dishes from the sea or land—served with a slight chill, of course.

While Kermit’s history in the region is relatively recent, Liguria has rapidly become one of his favorite places to visit. It’s hard to blame him—enjoying a crisp, perfumed white with a platter of fried sea critters on the Mediterranean is definitely not the worst part of the job.

Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
