Ka' Manciné is a tiny estate in western Liguria, almost on the border with France, in the Rossese di Dolceacqua DOC. Maurizio Anfosso and Roberta Repaci own about 3 hectares of the Rossese variety, in the Beragna and Galeae crus. Maurizio and Roberta's wines are pale in color, medium bodied, extremely fresh and spicy, with lovely silky texture and refreshing juiciness. Lighter red wines are some of the best food wines, and these are some of Italy's most attractive examples.
*Jancis Robinson says that it's identical to a grape found in southern France called Tibouren, which she describes as 'lively, aromatic and relatively light with a distinctive and refreshing sour-cherry flavour.'
