About Divella Gussago Blanc de Noirs
Divella Gussago Blanc de Noirs is the supreme expression of pinot noir bottled by the estate. Made exclusively from first-press pinot noir which has been softly hand-pressed with a manual wood basket press. Aged for 42 months the lees, this wine lavishes us with a bouquet of rich tertiary aromas on the nose and a powerful minerality and structure on the palate.
About Divella Gussago
At twenty-nine years old, Alessandra Divella is the Italian answer to grower Champagne, on track to upend the industrial farming practices rampant in Franciacorta. Her vines have been organic from the start and her two hectares, on lease for thirty years from an older neighbor, teem with life, including rosehips and praying mantises. The aim is to eventually move toward permaculture. Grapes are always hand-harvested and treated gently.
Alessandra herself has a quiet confidence that belies the adrenaline rush of her wines: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir so saline and bracing they make your heart race. She does not come from a winemaking family but rather stumbled into it through interactions with winemakers that made her “feel at home.” She does, however, draw from her family heritage when it comes to detail and precision: her Italian father (for which her NiNì cuvée is named) and Swiss mother (Clo Clo) are both academics.
Zero sulfur / zero dosage, Alessandra’s wines are 100% méthode champenoise so dialed into their provenance of clay and limestone that your mouth will salivate for minutes (if not hours) afterward. With less than a decade of winemaking experience under her wing, Alessandra has already achieved pioneer status within the region as one of the first estates to farm organically and the first to be female-led. The exceptional level of wines produced is mind-melting, especially considering that this is only the beginning.
