TRAMONTI - ALBAROLA-VERMENTINO WHITE WINE
The very first DOC wine of La Spezia and a witness to the history of viticolture in the region, from its very beginning. The landscape of this area is breathtakingly beautiful. The terrain is terraced and gradually sloping to the sea. In the vineyard the work is hard and strenuous and must be done exclusively by hand. Climatic conditions can be a problem, particularly sea breezes and gusts of wind. The vine is not allowed to grow much in height and more often than not maintenance is done while kneeling. This wine is obteined from a selection of grapes from the vineyards in front of the sea.
