Structure, freshness too, and a wild edge for fun. Delicious.
About the Wine
This is one skinsy wine full of vibrancy and energy, hand crafted by the talented hands of Trish Nelson.
She takes a blend of Italian varietals, Procanico, Malvasia Toscana and Trebbiano, and lets the whole thing sit on its skins for about a month. The results are magical - well balanced and a lick of minerality from the volcanic lakeside soils.
Atypical? Maybe, but delicious? Absolutely.
Trish Nelson is an Aussie making waves in Italy with her minimalistic approach to winemaking. After working at powerhouse Italian wineries like La Coste and Cantina Giardino, she decided it was time to start her own label - and thus, the birth of Gazzetta.
She makes her wines in a hillside near Lake Bolsena in Lazio, with a 2.5 hectare vineyard that she nurtures with organic principles (though not yet certified) and cares for by hand. It's a very lo-fi approach, adding nothing in the cellar and only treating the vines with tinctures made from local herbs, like nettle, camomile and willow.
Her wines are full of life, with each bottle showcasing her passion for winemaking, and are sure to put a smile on your face.
