2020 Gazzetta Bianco GO511131
WINEMAKER: Trish Nelson
VARIETAL: Procanico, Ansonica
REGION: Lazio, IT
G05, like Bianco Castagno, brings in Trish enjoyment in working with chestnut barrels which started at Cantina Giardino. The blend is Procanico and Ansonica, two weeks skin contact, then aged in chestnut barrel. Amber in colour, the wine is minerally driven with great stone fruit characters and lovely tannins.
After working with Cantina Giardino and Le Coste, Trish Nelson moved to a small cottage in Località Gazzetta on the hills above the village of Bolsena in Lazio’s north. She farms two hectares next to Lago di Bolsena, the largest volcanic lake in Europe, a unique microclimate in which her vineyard sits between the Mediterranean Sea and the Apennine Mountains. Trish works organically, using herbal teas made from local plants such as nettle, dandelion, willow and chamomile, and without any additions whatsoever, including sulphur. Pure and expressive.
