2019 Andrea Occhipinti 'Lacaldera' Grechetto Rosso

Lazio, Italy

If you experienced the joy and energy of Le Coste, Andrea is situated in the same area and is producing wines of extreme quality and popularity. Made with the indigenous Grechetto Rosso, on skins for 15 days before 18 months in steel and cement. You're left with this highly aromatic and soft textured red fruit (cherry skins and ripe rhubarb) yet all savoury and herbal. Balanced and complex. Only around 1200 bottles made.

About the maker

Not to be confused with the Sicilian - Ariana Occhipinti, Andrea's estate is based on the slopes surrounding the Volcanic lake of Bolsena in Lazio.

Andrea works essentially with Aleatico di Gradoli (the local Aleatico, stylistically a bit more on the delicate and spicy than the versions from Tuscany) and with Grechetto Rosso (called Grechette due to proximity with Umbria, but part of the Sangiovese family). Situated just one hour north of Rome, the lake provides a unique microclimate that together with the particular terroir and Andrea’s objective to preserve and promote the local indigenous varietals, Aleatico and Grechetto Rosso, produce wines with the flavour of tradition and the effervescence of innovation.
