Gaia, Cantina Giardino 2019
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.
Fiano from a 90 year old vineyard planted some five hundred metres above sea level. This spent two days on skins, then a year on its lees in big, old chestnut barrels. It is incredibly open, with complex aromatics and a wonderfully textural palate.
