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. 

From eighty year old vines of Greco planted at an altitude of 500 metres in Taurasi, this spends four days on skins, followed by a year resting in chestnut casks. Compact and powerful, it is a wine wine where depth, tannin and acidity seem to be in perfect harmony, suggesting it will reward drinkers for many years to come.
