Coste del Vivo Rosso No 1 75cl


Tasting Note

“Imagine a flavour amalgam of Bordeaux, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Chinon and then give it a little age and also some well-seasoned oak, and you have a flavour that twists and turns on the palate triggering every taste bud imaginable.” Matthew Jukes


Coste del Vivo is the personal project of winemaker Toby Owen. 20 years ago Toby was manager of a wine shop in Scotland, dreaming of one day being able to make wine like the best of those he sold. In 2009 a chance meeting led to experience working with Brunello producer San Polino in Montalcino. Later, in 2012 he returned to Montalcino as winemaking assistant at Casa Raia. By the following vintage he was winemaker for micro-producer Hortulanus in the beautiful vineyards of Seggiano on Monte Amiata
