Showing its own special personality, the 2016 Cinqueterre (a blend of Bosco and Albarola) is a second product from Campogrande with a more accessible style. The wine shows bright primary fruit with honey and apricot, but you also get those dry, tannic and oxidized flavors that come when white wine is fermented on the skins
Showing its own special personality, the 2016 Cinqueterre (a blend of Bosco and Albarola) is a second product from Campogrande with a more accessible style. The wine shows bright primary fruit with honey and apricot, but you also get those dry, tannic and oxidized flavors that come when white wine is fermented on the skins. In terms of aging, this wine is not going anywhere for a long, long while. Some 5,600 bottles were made. RP92 (Monica Larner)

I was thrilled to taste these samples because I had only heard the stories of Elio Altare and his quasi-fugitive preference for these extreme vineyards in Riomaggiore, Liguria, over his beloved property in La Morra, Barolo. His daughter Silvia confided in me that he often escapes to Liguria as she deals with key farming moments back in Piedmont. This project is a joint venture between the Altare and Bonanni (Antonio and Simone) families in the panoramic Cinque Terre. Wine is made in an ancient stone house in Riomaggiore. Winemaking is very simple. After harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed. They ferment on the skins for four days. Only local grapes are used. The Campogrande and Serra vineyards count two hectares planted mostly to Bosco (90%) and Albarola (10%). The vines are planted in the Guyot and Pergola systems on steeply terraced cliffs overlooking brilliant seascapes. (Monica Larner)
