Crocizia is in an area outside of Parma that is not especially known for its vineyards. Yet  Marco, Sara, and Aurelio Rizzardi found an abandoned farm with vines deep in the woods at 1640 ft of elevation and decided to restore it. The vines were never sprayed with chemicals in the previous 50 years and the Rizzardis have continued to farm them organically since they began in 2003. They are deeply committed to taking care of their woodland paradise and using the pre-industrial traditional method of making lightly sparkling wines.

'Znestra' is Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, a special grape of Emilia-Romagna. It is extra-floral but Crocizia's example is beautifully complex with dusty lavender, tangerine, and layers of mouth-coating chalky detail. There's an amazing umami on the finish that is haunting and soulful. Three days of skin contact and zero sulfur added. Jonathan Kemp
