La Bollina Josué Rosso Terre Siciliane IGP 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
What’s that? Luca Maroni, Italy’s greatest wine critic, has given this red a staggering 99 points? Just to be clear, his scale goes up to 99. This is the ceiling, the pinnacle, sheer perfection. And just to put a bow on it, Vivino places this in the top 2% of all wines worldwide. Whoa!
This wine is a blend of Sicilian native nero d’avola, and the French merlot. The combo produces a powerful blend of plush, ripe berries and structure, with future to age for many years. It shows balance, in spite of the power, with great freshness and acidity giving lift and relief from the densely concentrated body. It’s a crossover hit really - you get the exotic nero and the familiar merlot. An absolute delight that won’t last long.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

In the heart of Gavi lies this 120ha property. Where once resided the Marchioness Figari of Genova, the villa onsite is now a luxury hotel where you can live out your dreams of eating and drinking like Italian nobility. Planted over 25ha (the rest dedicated to golf courses and chestnut woods) are traditional grape varieties like cortese, chardonnay, barbera, dolcetto and nebbiolo. Founded in 2009, La Bollina honours the historical and rural traditions of the area, although their winemaking techniques have been completely overhauled. They now use only the best modern winemaking techniques to make the best Piedmontese wines possible.
