About Cantina Giardino
Cantina Giardino is a joint venture between six friends with the goal of preserving old vineyards and native grape varieties in and around Irpinia, a mountainous town in the heart of Campania. Headed by Antonio and Daniela di Gruttola, the project sources fruit from 16 distinct and often quite distant parcels. In total, this represents about six hectares and includes a 2.5-ha plot that the couple recently purchased. From the beginning, the aim has been to source older vines (50+) from contadini who have been working traditionally for generations but were at risk of having to abandon or uproot their land.
The indigenous Aglianico, Coda di Volpe, Greco, and Fiano grapes are used to make a wide, ever-evolving range of reds, whites, and rosé, all bottled with distinctive labels designed by a tight-knit crew of local artists. Vinification is an instinctual, unique process for each vintage: Antonio currently owns a wide array of aging vessels, including oak and cherry wood barrels, demi-muits, stainless steel tanks, fiberglass, and amphorae homemade by Daniela. Each year, the wine ends up where Antonio feels it needs to be. Longer elevages are typical for the Aglianico, as is skin contact for the whites, although again, both vary from wine to wine, vintage to vintage. In rare cases and only if deemed absolutely necessary, a small dose of sulfur is added at bottling. Otherwise, the wine is bottled as-is.
