Le Coste Litrozzo Rosso
Grapes: Sangiovese, Merlot
Clementine Bouveron and Gianmarco Antonuzzi make wine in the volcanic, iron rich soils of northern Lazio. They have around 14 hectares of land with vineyards interspersed with olive groves and chestnut trees. All work in the vineyards is done by hand and the wines are made with minimal intervention in the winery.
A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that were destemmed and spent just a few days on skins, before being pressed off to cuve to rest until bottling in spring. This really impresses with gentle floral notes, a cascade of berries black and blue, a hint of earth and funk. With plush fruit and just a little tannin, it is all one could ask for from a vino da tavola.
