Le Coste di Gradoli
Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clementine Bouveron tend around 14 hectares of land, with vineyards amongst a warren of olive groves, chestnut trees, shrubs and oaks. Sat around the volcanic Lake Bolsena near Gianmarco’s childhood town of Gradoli in Lazio’s north, the region’s soils are rich in iron and minerals.
Vines are planted at a density of up to 10,000 plants per hectare, from a mix of massale selections and ungrafted vines. Everything is done by hand, with careful attention to the needs of each plant and while some biodynamic principles are employed, the approach here goes above and beyond.
