Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clementine Bouveron look after around 14 hectares of land, with vineyards amongst a abundance of chestnut trees, shrubs and oaks. Situated by a volcanic Lake Bolsena near the town of Gradoli in Lazio’s north.
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.
Each year they produce a dizzying number of different wines which are vinified in an ancient cellar in the village’s centre, with no additions at all. To taste here is a real treat, Gianmarco is a master of elevage and a real patience in this respect results in some of the purest, most delicious wines we have tried.
Bianco is macerated briefly with the skins, fermented in vats for about 3 weeks and then matured in barrels of various sizes for about one year. It is a dry and structured wine, deep yellow in colour. Notes of yellow fruits, a very nice acidity, saltiness and some tannic structure. Intense nose with macerated flowers, citruses and apricot. This wine may be shaken before serving to spread the segments and flavours evenly.
