Gazzetta Rosso Piero
Gazzetta is the wine making project of Trish Nelson, an Australian who after spending several years working at Cantina Giardino and Le Coste bought a small cottage among vines in the hills of northern Lazio. In all she has two hectares of old vineyards planted with Procanico and Ansonica, Malvasia and Moscato.
Merlot from the Ajola vineyards in Orvieto, fermented on the skins for two weeks and aged in a combination of old barrels and vat. It is simply autumn in a glass, marrying brambly fruit, savoury spice and a warming herbaceous character. A pure, rustic wine for the table.
