Le Coste is a winery founded in 2004 by Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clémentine Bouveron next to Lago di Bolsena. They strive to practice an agriculture that is eco-compatible with the nature and the landscape that surrounds them, and produce natural wines without compromising with the logic of the market or succumbing to its pressures. They currently have 6.5 hectares of vineyards, partly owned and partly rented, which they cultivate following the principles of biodynamics.
The vineyards for Le Coste Rosso are found in soils of volcanic, mineral and ferrous origin. They are harvested by hand and have a relatively low yield, so they produce grapes that are concentrated and balanced.
Le Coste Rosso is harvested manually, and once in the winery the grapes are completely destemmed and placed in wooden vats. They then ferment with native yeasts and macerate with the skins for about 3 weeks. Lastly, it ages for 12 to 15 months in oak and chestnut barrels.
