Litrozzo Rosso is a visceral vino full of plump red fruits, oozing cherries, dried fruits, soft spice and bright minerals. It’s a mouth hug – a joyful example of harvest wine, made by the people for the people. Sangiovese meets Merlot, fermented naturally with no added sulphur. Tip: Serve slightly chilled, open it with a shoe and drink as shown on the label.

Based in Gradoli, Italy, Le Coste Vineyard began in 2004 when Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clementine Bouveron purchased 3ha of abandoned land known as 'Le Coste'. The vineyard now covers about 14ha, with biodynamically-farmed young vines, old vines (40 – 60 yrs), olive trees and fruit trees growing on volcanic soils rich in iron and minerals. 'Litrozzo' was born in 2006 with the idea of having something to drink during the week and to offer friends at weekend lunches. It's Le Coste's interpretation of an everyday wine, a ‘vino da tavola’, a guzzler, suited for meals and aperitivo. Its name derives from the fact that a 750ml bottle is too small!
