Lake Gradoli, about 30 miles north of Rome, is the largest volcanic lake in Europe. Above the lake, at around 450m altitude, sit long-established vineyards, planted with local grape varieties Aleatico and Grechetto Rosso. Andrea Occhipinti fell in love with the area as a student, and has since dedicated himself to making elegant wines from these little-known vines. Taking a natural approach, fermenting and ageing the wine in terracotta amphorae and bottling with minimal sulphur, he creates a wine which is wild, floral and with a beautiful cherry flavour. Utterly delicious.
