Le Coste Le Primeur Rosso 2019


The headily aromatic Lazio specialty in Aleatico undergoes carbonic maceration for a few short weeks, before being pressed off to vat to finish fermentation and rest until the following spring. Super lift and punchy in its floral perfume, a glass offers heady aromatics of tropical flower and spice, though the 2019 vintage seems to offer a little more juicy chutzpah on the palate, with plush black fruits and a balancing herbaceous note.
