Gazzetta Rosso Gazzetta
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.
This is Sangiovese from a thirty year old parcel planted over clay in Orvieto. The grapes were destemmed, fermented on the skins for three weeks and the wine spent six months ageing in large chestnut casks. Bright cherry in colour, the nose is thick with spice, while the palate offers firm tannins and a pleasant herbaceous character that screams for something beautiful off the grill.
