|Available in store:||Check availability|
The Smilla vineyards are in Bosio, Piedmont, near the Ligurian Apennines, and they embrace the DOCG area of Gavi and the DOC area of Dolcetto di Ovada. The inaccessible and steep hills that are home to the vineyards are worked in a traditional manner with the limited use of machinery. For La Smilla, producing wine means seeing its product reborn in a new way every year. Imagination, ingenuity, enhancement of the peculiarities of each year and an ongoing commitment to improve: all the wines of La Smilla are the result of these values
The cellar is located in the center of the village of Bosio and has maintained the characteristics of the past: the underground section of the cellar with the cement barrels continues to be a rare and distinctive environment, while the more modern section houses steel barrels as well as French oak barrels for aging wine.
Crisp yet full-bodied, with characteristic mineral notes, hints of honeysuckle, and tropical fruit, and a tangy, citric finish. It is superb with fish but also pairs well with many other light dishes.
