Rossese di Dolceacqua from Testalonga.
Antonio Perrino.


Antonio Perrino is arguably the top producer of this tiny appellation. All winemakers in Dolceacqua have tiny production as a result of the small parcels of steeply terraced vineyards. On top of this, Antonio has all old vines in albarello that produce very low yields, but great grapes. Antonio's rossese is all in the Arcagna vineyard, considered one of the best sites in the appellation. He also has vermentino which he makes with extended skin contact. This stuff is very limited.


This visit with Antonio Perrino at Testalonga took place in November, 2012.
