Giovanna Maccario is in charge of the Maccario Dringenberg estate today, where Rossese takes center stage. She and her husband Goetz Dringenberg work their old vines (some are 120+ years old) in the ancient albarello/bush-trained system in order to protect the vines from the often extreme conditions of the area. Tractors are not an option in this steep terrain, so all the work is done by hand. All of the Dringenberg wines are vinified in steel tanks to maintain the unique aromatic expression of this captivating variety.
Luvaira, a single vineyard site, is always a stunner – layers, and layers of spice and nuance and remarkable freshness for a wine that possesses so much depth. This wine is only made in top vintages.
