This is a lightly macerated, floral treat. A delicate, soothing rosato 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% Aleatico hand-harvested from 50 year-old vines grown in volcanic soils at ample elevation (500m). A very short maceration is followed by pressing into tank and a year of elevage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with no additional SO2. 12.5%ABV
