Le Coste Rosato
A rosé of rare elegance
Characteristics Le Coste Rosato
Le Coste Rosato is a natural and ecological, barrel-aged rosé wine made by Le Coste in the Italian region of Lazio with the Aleatico native variety.
Le Coste is run by Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron. It is a small winemaking operation with 14 hectares of land around Lago di Bolsena, in northern Lazio (Italy). Every year they produce a great variety of different wines that are made naturally and without adding oenological products. This results in some pure and delicious wines.
The Le Coste Rosato wine comes from a 50-year-old vineyard that lies about 500 metres above sea level. These are old vines planted on volcanic soils that are rich in iron and minerals. The team uses ecological agriculture with organic treatments and biodynamic practices. This work in the vineyard is carried out with extreme care, with great attention to detail and taking into account the needs of each plant.
In the winery, the Le Coste Rosato grapes spend just a couple of hours in contact with the skins before being pressed in the tank. They ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and the wine ages for 10 months in old oak barrels. It is finally bottled without being filtered, clarified or adding sulphur.
A year of production results in Le Coste Rosato. An unusually elegant and delicate rosé that is just waiting to be opened and enjoyed.
