Andrea Occhipinti fell in love with the vineyards of Gradoli while he was at the Agrarian University of Tuscia, so much so that they became the subject of his master thesis in 2004. Soon after graduating, Andrea was able to purchase few hectares of vineyards planted in the 1990’s. They are set at 450 meters above sea level on the volcanic slopes of Lake Bolsena, the biggest volcanic lake in Europe. Situated just one hour north of Rome, the lake provides a unique microclimate that together with the particular terroir and Andrea’s objective to preserve and promote the local indigenous varietals, Aleatico and Grechetto Rosso, produces wines with the flavour of tradition and the effervescence of innovation.
The area is influenced by the Bolsena Lake, never too hot or too cold, very windy and good temperature range between day and night.
Straw-yellow in colour with intense aromas of white acacia and hawthorn. Fresh, tender and subtle on the palates with a lot of delicacy and freshness.
