About Le Coste Litrozzo Rosso

Le Coste Litrozzo Rosso is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that were destemmed and spent just a few days on skins, before being pressed off to cuvée to rest until bottling in spring. This really impresses with gentle floral notes, a cascade of berries black and blue, a hint of earth and funk. With plush fruit and just a little tannin, it is all one could ask for from a vino da tavola.

About Le Coste

Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron tend around 14 hectares of land, with vineyards amongst olive groves, chestnut trees, shrubs, and oaks. Sat around Lago di Bolsena near Gianmarco’s childhood town of Gradoli in Lazio’s north, the soils are volcanic, rich in iron and minerals.

Vines are planted at a density of up to 10,000 plants per hectare, from a mix of massale selections and ungrafted vines. Everything is done by hand, with careful attention to the needs of each plant and while biodynamic principles are employed, the approach here goes above and beyond.

Each year they produce a dizzying number of different wines which are vinified in an ancient cellar in the village’s center where nothing is added at any stage. To taste here is a real treat, Gianmarco is a master of élevage, and real patience in this respect results in some of the purest, most delicious wines we have tried. This is a fascinating project, where the passion and dedication of two people are single-handedly putting one of Italy’s lesser-known villages firmly on the map.
