Gazzetta Vino Bianco
Grapes: Procanico, Ansonica, Malvasia Toscana
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.
Vino Bianco is a blend of Procanico, Ansonica and Malvasia Toscano fermented on skins for 3 weeks before ageing in chestnut barrels for a year. It's rich and smooth with a good core of pear and stone fruit overlaid with wild herbs and spice.
