New Arrivals by Selvadolce
Our grower in focus for this month is Aris Blancardi from Selvadolce. Known for his progressive and environmentalist spirit, Aris farms his grandfathers century old biodynamic estate in Bordighera on the coast of Liguria, Italy.
The south facing vineyards planted at 600m altitude on sandy soil are heavily influenced by the sea and surrounds letting nature be the guidance for his work in both the field as well as in the cellar, 'until I think they are ready, I do not release my wines. It is a gesture of respect for the land I cultivate and for those who have to enjoy the fruit'
We are beyond excited to bring you our new Selvadolce two pack consisting of thoughtfully curated cuvées that we absolutely love drinking.
The 'VB1' 2018 is a 100% Vermentino grape which has had 8 month skin maceration in barrique with indigenous yeast, an elevated and complex wine full of minerality. A long and tense sip, with tasting notes of dry honey, oxidised white flowers and hints of lightly toasted almonds.
The Crescendo 2020 is a 100% Pigato grape, expressive and delicate with ripe white fruits on the nose. On the palate it's citrus, harmonious and savoury ending with a pleasant final freshness.
