Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola, advocates for preserving Campania's native varietals and old vineyards, focus their efforts in the high hills of Irpinia. Working organically with vineyards set at altitude over vibrant volcanic soils, they hand-tend the vines, ensuring low yields of healthy, characterful fruit. In the cantina, Antonio adopts a no-nonsense approach, allowing the terroir to express itself fully. Grapes ferment naturally without temperature control, often continuing for months. The wines are aged in a mix of terracotta amphorae and large casks made from local woods, bottled unfiltered, with no additions, resulting in singular, vivid expressions of grape and place.

From their Cantina Giardino in Irpinia, Campania, comes a wine crafted from a seventy-five-year-old vineyard in Montemarano. Spending two weeks on skins and two and a half years in chestnut barrels, this wine strikes a perfect balance between maturity and youthful vigor. It boasts remarkable structure with firm tannins and a long, lingering acidity, suggesting a promising longevity.
