Ronchi di Gramogliano
The Perusini vineyards are one of the 50 happy few listed by Luigi Veronelli in “I vignaioli storici” (The Italian Wine-growers Bible). Today the estate is run by Giampaolo’s daughter, Teresa, an art historian like her uncle, but also a keen cultivator who divides her time between her studies and running the estate together with her husband Giacomo de Pace and her three sons. For centuries, the hills of Gramogliano have been renowned, like Rosazzo and Rocca Bernarda, not just for their natural beauty, but also for the terrain, position and microclimate that make up the cru hors classe of Friuli’s Colli Orientali.
