Gazzetta Vino Rosso 2018
An early picking of Sangiovese and Aleatico from the vines Trish rents on the hill above Orvieto. The soil here is different to Bolsena, the remains of an old seabed, the sand and limestone are littered with shells and stones. The grapes here were destemmed and the berries left for three weeks to infuse gently before being pressed off to chestnut and cuve for a year of élevage. With gentle flavours of red fruits and flowers and just a hint of spice, this is just perfect for spring!
