Producer profile

Le Coste

Le Coste di Gradoli is a winery located in Gradoli, Lazio, Central Italy, near the volcanic Lake Bolsena. The 14-hectare estate is owned and operated by Gianmarco Antonuzzi and Clementine Bouveron. It comprises a vineyard, olive groves, chestnut trees, shrubs, and oaks. The terroir of this region is characterized by iron-rich soil and a mild climate – not quite Mediterranean but not fully continental.

Gianmarco and Clementine do everything by hand, adopting a biodynamic approach in the vineyard – Le Coste di Gradoli is certified organic – and low-intervention one in the cellar. They make some of the best Italian natural wine.

Wine region

Lazio, Italy

Lazio, also known as Latium, is a central Italian wine region renowned for its ancient winemaking heritage, which dates back to Etruscan times. The area is predominantly recognized for its white wines, especially from grape varieties like Malvasia and Trebbiano, which are used to produce well-known wines such as Frascati and Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone. These wines are typically light, crisp, and meant to be consumed young.

The region's geography varies from volcanic hills to fertile plains, providing a diverse terroir that supports viticulture. The volcanic soils, in particular, enrich the wines with a complex mineral profile.

Despite its historical legacy, Lazio's wines have remained relatively obscure on the international market compared to other Italian regions. However, there is a growing interest in the region's red wines, including Cesanese, Sangiovese, and Montepulciano varieties. These reds are known for their depth and ability to age well.

Lazio also benefits from a Mediterranean climate influenced by the Tyrrhenian Sea, which moderates temperatures, allowing for a longer growing season.
