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 beautiful vineyard in Montemarano, where the vines are over one hundred years of age. It spent an incredible three months on skins, followed by seven years resting in old casks. Impossibly powerful and deep, it is a wine just reaching the peak of its powers with mature balsamic notes emerging amongst the dark fruits and spice.
