Terrazze Singhie - Colline Savonesi Lumassina 2018
From the importer -
100% Lumassina. Grapes are hand-picked at different times based on ripeness and to achieve aromatic complexity, therefore several micro-vinifications occur. Spontaneous fermentation with 10 to 20 days of skin maceration. Aged in 225 & 500 liter barrels for 9 to 11 months before bottling. No filtering or fining and minimal added sulfur. A miniscule 2900 bottle production.
Terrazze Singhie was established in 2017 and was inspired by Sara Polo and Mauro Migliavacca’s passion for organic viticulture and natural wine. After many years spent gaining experience and knowledge travelling the world of wine, both in Italy and internationally, they were fortune to discover a small hidden jewel surrounded by historic dry-stone walls in the town of Orco Feglino, Liguria. Their belief that the geographical and historical characteristics of Liguria’s terroir can create unique wines; their desire to preserve a centuries-old vineyard, and their belief that Lumassina, an autochthonous grape variety found in only three valleys in the Savona area, can yield an exceptional, authentic wine, made this vineyard a perfect match.
