This is a light, joyous, and unmoored expression of Syrah 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: 100% Syrah hand-harvested from vines grown in volcanic, mineral-rich soil. The grapes undergo a two-week long carbonic maceration before aging for one year in large oak barrels. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, no additional SO2. 12%ABV
