Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola seek out old vineyards in Irpinia, high in the hills of Campania. They champion and preserve the region’s native varietals, old vines and an age old way of tending them. The vines are set at altitude and are planted over the region’s vibrant volcanic soils. Vineyard work is done by hand, organically and a combination of great farming and low yields results in healthy,
characterful fruit. In the cantina, Antonio takes a no-nonsense approach with the intention of letting this terroir express itself in full. The grapes ferment naturally without temperature control and fermentation can continue for 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.
The Red Anfora magnum is red wine of Cantina Giardino is vinified with Aglianico. Long maceration on skin in amphora, no filtration and no sulphite added. Definite gamey notes on the palate and smokiness on the nose. Medium body. Delicious acidity and ripe tannins. Good grip. Juicy black fruits.
