2019 Le Coste Le Primeur Aleatico
A fresh, fun and enigmatic wine from the Le Coste producers.
Aleatico, an ancient varietal widely planted in Lazio, undergoes carbonic maceration for a couple of weeks, before being pressed off to vat to finish fermentation and rest until the following spring. Aleatico is impressive with a hit of carbonic maceration, it becomes charming, fruitful, flirty. Its dizzying nose feels like fresh roses from Grandma's garden, pleasant bitterness akin to cinchona, squishy black berries only to finish in bounces off the palate like something wonderful and carefree. Smart and refreshing, serve at 15 degrees.
