Palazzo Tronconi "Gizziello" Lecinaro Rosato Frizzante Frusinate 2018Regular price $21.00 Save $-21.00
100% Lecinaro, an obscure red grape native to Lazio. This is a blanc de noirs col fondo frizzante, so an unfiltered sparkling wine, similar to Pet Nat in style. It smells lovely, and tastes just as great. Ruby red grapefruit, guava, and some salty papaya notes with a bright, dry finish. Perfect rustic refreshment.
About a decade ago, winemaker Marco Marocco left his job as a mechanical engineer and elevator company owner to get back to the land. He farms with Biodynamic practices and now teaches at the local Steiner school, going even deeper into the Biodynamic fold. [Jonathan Kemp August, 2020]
