Le Coste, Rosato 2019
Is this the most iconic Natural Rose in the game? Here we have the 2019 vintage of Le Coste's infamous Rosato. Made from Aleatico from a fifty-year-old vineyard, planted at around 500 metres above sea level. The grapes are destemmed and spend a few hours on their skins before being pressed off to vat to finish fermentation, before spending a year of élevage in old barrels. The 2019 was a slightly warmer vintage, so this is noticeably more fruit-forward and fleshy than previous vintages. Juiced Recommends.
The Le Coste duo are Clementine Bouveron and Gianmarco Antonuzzi who met in France while working for the guru Gerard Schueller in Alsace, France. The pair spent over 2years working with some of France’s most renowned producers before deciding to move back to Gianmarco’s village of Gradoli in Lazio’s north. Since moving back the pair have reinvigorated local grapes and are now making some of the most respected and original wines in the Natural Wine game.
