Le Coste ‘Rosso di Gaetano’ Vino 2016

Estate: Husband and wife team Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron revitalised around 14 hectares of abandoned land in Gradoli, Gianmarco’s childhood town. The property faces Lake Bolsena and is on the border between Lazio and Tuscany. Vines are set amongst olive groves, chestnut and oak trees. Farming is low intervention, using biodynamic and organic principles. The volcanic soil is rich in iron and minerals.

Tasting Notes: Red-violet in colour, with aromas of sour cherry, baking spice, licorice, forest floor and candied violet. All the cherries [red, black and sour], peppery spice, summer woods, and wildflowers are accented by fresh acidity and black tea tannins. Tangy fruit and smoky minerality linger on the plush finish. An engaging, mercurial play between sweet, tart and spice.
