More and more wine lovers regard Gradoli, in Alta Tuscia, as one of the most interesting lands for Lazio wine production, able to impose its own products to the attention of the entire national scene. This Renaissance of the northern Lazio lands can’t disregard GianMarco Antonuzzi and his wife Clémentine Bouveron, owners of Le Coste winery.
They run 4 ha of 60 years old vineyards (coming from 20 years abandoned lands) for rent (including the Cru Le Coste), 4 ha of olive trees and 3 ha of terraces abandoned which became woods, plus several fruit trees that run along the vineyards. Those one, on the slopes of Bolsena Lake , at an altitude between 450 and 600 meters, mostly ungrafted, are raised with a high density of planting on volcanic soil. The wines obtained, all coming from historical grapes of the territory (such as Aleatico, Procanico, Ansonica, Roscetto, Malvasia, Vermentino,Ciliegiolo, Verdello, Colorino, Canaiolo, Grechetto Rosso etc.) are the result of few strict rules: only biodynamic and permaculture in the vineyard, no intervention or artificial addition in the cellar. Consistent with their production philosophy, Gianmarco and Clémentine have quickly become one of the most authoritative voices of the natural wine movement in Italy and abroad.
This Litrozzo Bianco is obtained from Procanico and Malvasia grapes with a small addition of other varieties (Roscetto, Verdello, Romanesco, etc.).It is a straightforward and immediate wine, with a short maceration on the skins, fermentation in fibreglass and short aging in bottle (of 1 litre of capacity).
This slightly opaque straw yellow sample, without the vintage, has a pleasant and very simple scent of medlar, crispy white peach, grapefruit, cut fresh grass and smoky hints. The mouthfeel is very fresh and immediate, with an extreme drinkability and an acid closure of good length.
