Estate: Passionate about restoring her family’s ancient property of vineyards and olive groves, Danila Pisano founded her estate in 1990. The tiny 1 hectare estate is located in Liguria, northwestern Italy. She only grows the indigenous Rossese grape, and farms organically [certified since 1996], traditionally and with low intervention.
Winemaking: Vineyards are at an altitude of 150-250m with southwest exposures on steep hillsides. Vines are terraced and supported by traditional stone walls. Many of the vines date to the 1930’s, and are ungrafted.
Tasting Notes: Bright garnet in colour, with aromas of ripe red berries, wildflowers and sage. Wild strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, black peppercorn, summer woods and grilled rosemary are framed by silky black tea tannins and fresh acidity. A streak of iron minerality underscores black currant and eucalyptus on the spicy finish.
