Rossese

Punta Crena

Vigneto Isasco Riviera Ligure di Ponente Rossese 2020

Without food, this is an easy-drinking light wine with some muted red fruit and a sort of dusty, reduced earth/mineral note and not much of a mid palate—pleasant but not memorable. Served alongside garlic/anchovy/tuna/caper pasta, this wine is invigorated and gains new dimensions: bright red pomegranate, cherry and rose hip with a hint of sweet ocean air and Mediterranean herbs (thyme?), maybe even some cinnamon. — a month ago

Rossese di Dolceacqua 2018

Amatriciana - Rossese pairing that inspires childlike wonder. Not sure which one I wanted to shove in my mouth faster. Pepper, fruit leather and thirst-quenching acid worked lovely with the guanciale — 9 months ago

A fruitier style of rossese but still quite a lot of flavor depth. More savory and herbal on day 2. — 3 months ago

I buy every rossese I can get my hands on. I’ve been trying to save a few bottles to taste with age but it is very hard to keep my hands off them.

A distanza di 4 anni è perfetto, equilibrato. Profumatissimo. Armonico.
Grande evoluzione e livellamento di tutti i valori.
Miglioramento incredibile e notevolissimo.

Ka Mancinè

Beragna Dolceacqua Rossese 2018

Ka' Manciné is a tiny estate located on the south eastern slopes in western Liguria, in the Rossese di Dolceacqua DOC, almost on the border of France. Light ruby color, subtle hints of cherry and fig like, earthy and antique. The soft acidity lingers then finishes with a spicy freshness. — 3 months ago

Posaú Dolceacqua Rossese

Licorice, grapefruit, and straight up grass after it’s been mowed (I mean! What else you want me to say)

Velvety mouthfeel, well-balanced, a bit of an astringent quality like celery toward the end note. You know, it’s an interesting wine. There are many things going on.

Maybe it needs to open up a bit? It’s got comlexity in the end note but the front end is falling a bit flat for me. Nice mouthfeel, but where the oomph!

Letting it decant for a bit to see how it opens up

Tenuta Anfosso

Rossese di Dolceacqua 2015

Before completed, this was purple with a brick halo. Something worth a good sniff. Chocolaty leather, tobacco, cedar, raisins, plum. Big, vibrant mouth with a plush texture and firm acid. Ripe strawberry and cherry core, spiced cola and minerals in the periphery.

Flavors in the raspberry spectrum linger for quite a bit.
