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 seventy year old vines of Coda di Volpe planted around 450 metres above sea level. This spent just a couple of days on skins before being pressed off to chestnut casks for a year. Clean as a whistle, it impresses with fine tannins, striking minerality and a resfreshing herbaceous note.
