Le Coste 2019 Rosso di Gaetano sangiovese
From the same vineyard planted over tufo in Pitigliano, this is roughly half Sangiovese with the other half being a mix of Syrah and Merlot. It spent three weeks on skins, before being pressed off to cuve to rest for six months. This year’s effort is a little more savoury and spiced, packing black fruit and plenty of charm onto its slender frame.
Where: Lazio, Italy
What: Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot
How: This wine makes me want to eat something beany. Ribollita maybe?
