Le Coste di Gradoli Litrozzo Rosso 2020

Le Coste di Gradoli Litrozzo Rosso is an ethereal and crunchy natural red. Pale red colour. The nose is full of plum and cherry juice with hints of violets and pepper. Bright acidity and an enjoyable tannic texture on the palate means it rides the funky wave, but only on a low swell. Blackberry and blueberry jam flavour emerges to join the aromas into a long and persistent fruity finish.
