WINE DETAILS

From seventy-five-year-old vines planted with a rare pink-skinned variety of Coda di Volpe, some five hundred meters above sea level. This spent a day on skins, before being pressed off to sandstone amphorae and concrete vats for a year of rest. A gorgeous shade of brick in the glass, faint tannins frame complex flavors of blood orange, minerals, and spice. A cult classic, as always this is a rosato that ranks as one of Italy’s best.

Cantina Giardino 

Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola are dedicated to discovering old vineyards in Irpinia, nestled amongst the elevated terrain of Campania. Their mission is to safeguard the indigenous varieties of the region, ancient vines, and the traditional methods of farming.

These vines, nurtured at high altitudes, are firmly planted in the region’s lively volcanic soil. The vineyard duties are executed manually, using organic farming methods, resulting in extremely low yields of healthy grapes. In the winery, Antonio adopts a straightforward strategy with the aim of fully showcasing the unique terroir. Grapes are allowed to ferment naturally without regulated temperature control and this process can span several months.

Wines are raised in a combination of terracotta amphorae and large casks made from local woods and bottled unfiltered, with no additions at all. The resulting wines are singular, vivid expressions of grape and place.
