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.

Aglianico from a remote vineyard around eighty years old, planted almost 500 metres above sea level. It sees a month of maceration and two years élevage in old chestnut casks. Full of old vines complexity, reflecting the year, this is a little fresher than previous vintages.
