This is another lively and highly aromatic bottling, an orange blend of two different vineyard sites’ Moscato grapes from Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron of Le Coste. They tend ~14 hectares of vines (a wide mix of old and young vines) at high elevations in the north of Italy’s Lazio region, around Lago di Bolsena in the town of Gradoli (Gianmarco’s childhood home).
Vinification: A blend of Moscato (Muscat Blanc) hand-harvested from two different vineyard sites: Le Coste and Vigna Grande. Continuing, the different sites’ grapes under two different macerations prior to blending. Le Coste’s undergoes carbonic maceration while Vigna Grande’s moscato grapes have an short open-top maceration (i.e. not ‘carbonic’). The juices are blended and aged for twenty months in old oak. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, no additional SO2. 13.5%ABV
