From a young vineyard planted over tufo just across the Tuscan border in Pitigliano, this is a blend of Procanico, Malvasia, Moscato and many other local varieties. It spent two weeks on skins, with both fermentation and six months of élevage taking place in cuvée. This is delicate and fragrant with orange zest and herbs. A refreshing bitterness to the tannins makes for incredibly compelling drinking.
Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron of Le Coste tend around 14 hectares of land, with vineyards amongst olive groves, chestnut trees, shrubs and oaks. Here in Lazio the soils are volcanic, rich in iron and minerals, which all adds to the flavour of this delicious orange.
