After travelling the world and chasing gastronomic adventure after adventure, along with working with some of Italy's most notable natural wine producers (Antonio and Daniela of Cantina Giardino, Gianmarco and Clementine of Le Coste) and former partner Jacopo Battista of Ajola, Trish realised it was time to set up shop and start her own project. She picked out a beautiful spot near Lake Bolsena, Lazio, and Gazzetta was born.
She's kept things pretty minimal and modest by comparison - her winery is nothing more than a small room cut into a hillside with a few barrels and a melange of different sized fermenting tanks. The real magic happens in the vineyard. Everything in her 2.5 hectares is done organically and by hand with only herbal tinctures and teas used to ensure maximum vitality. To complement this lo-fi approach, she adds absolutely nothing in cellar either.
Her 2019 release includes seven wines that all have the local Lazio variety procanico at their core. But, because Trish likes to experiment with blending, length of time on skins, fermenting vessels and ageing, all her wines have distinct personalities and characteristics. Bianco Susanna, salty, cloudy, with a nourishing tonic-like appeal, drinks more like an aperitif. G05 spends more time on skins and ages in a chestnut barrel (a Cantina Giardino calling card she just couldn't resist!) so has a bit of heft and weight that would be perfect with a pork roast - please don't forget the fennel. But shut the gate, Rosa Trilli bloody wins the day. Not really a surprise considering how much we love ourselves a rosato. Purity is a the byline here. The energy is real. The vibe is high. Fact.
