Le Coste ‘Rusticone’ Vino Rosso 2017

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

Winemaking: A blend of old and young vineyard parcels. Wild yeast spontaneous fermentation, aged in old oak, unfined, unfiltered, no added SO2. This is the second time ‘Rusticone’ has been produced.

Tasting Notes: Vivid black cherry, blueberry, pomegranate, roasted rosemary, smoky earth glide across a framework of fine grain tannins and tangy acidity. Roasted chestnut, red currant saturate the sleek finish. Tangy, silky, super fun.
