Rosso No.1 Coste del Vivo 16/17/19
Toby Owen's multivintage Rosso no1 is an absolute corker. When described by an eminent wine writer as "delicious, delicious, delicious" after they have tasted hundreds of wines over 7 hours, you look smart! 63% Sangiovese, 18% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, and the remainder two indigenous varieties, Pugnitello and Cillegiolo. 60% 2019, 8% 2018, 18% 2017, 12% 2016 and the remainder 2015.
Toby used to run a wine shop in St Andrews and always dreamt of making wine. He studied in the UK and worked for several years for an English sparkling producer before making the move to Italy. He was mentored by one of Brunello di Montalcino's top producers, San Polino, for several years and worked at another top estate, Casa Raia. A few years ago, he stumbled upon some vineyards in a less fashionable area that were in danger of being abandoned due to their low yields and the back-breaking work it took to farm them due to the steep slopes of the “Coste”. With a gift of a few bottles of wine, he convinced their owners for him to take them on, and has since been responsible for 5 small vineyards close to the villages of Seggiano and Castel del Piano totalling 2.5 ha. He farms organically and almost entirely by hand, and very low intervention in the cellar too. The name Coste del Vivo refers to the rugged slopes that form the picturesque valley of the Vivo - a narrow tributary of the River Orcia.
