Spotlight on: Tenuta Selvadolce
Overlooking the sea of the extreme west of Liguria, a few kilometres from the border with France, Tenuta Selvadolce extends for about 7 hectares in one of the most scenic areas of the Bordighera hills. Secular olive trees, dry stone walls and Bougainvillea frame the vineyard.
Aris Blancardi looks after vineyards that are strongly influenced by the sea and the powerful mistral winds. The vines are comprised of a few young vineyards of Pigato, Vermentino, plus some splendid vineyards of Rossese that he planted at 600m altitudes on sandy soil, close to the inland village of Dolceacqua.
We are pleased to stock the wines of Selvadolce, which are now available online and at our Amsterdam store.
