Le Coste 2017 Rosso
Gianmarco and Clementine met in France while working for the legendary Bruno (Gerard Schueller) in Alsace. After years of working together, they decided to move back to Gianmarco’s village of Gradoli on the shores of Lake Bolsena in Lazio on these volcanic soils. The giant wine-press has talked a lot of Etna and his volcanic soil, perhaps next will be Gradoli and the Le Coste Rosso a benchmark Sangiovese of Le Coste. Dark cherry, firm tannins and beautiful acidity, straight and complex. Nicely savory with mineral grippiness on the palate. Pure, vivid and delicious with nice complexity. Wine needs time. Form the old vines of the property in massal selection. Old barrel aging.
