About Cantina Giardino
Cantina Giardino is one of Italy's most interesting, delicious and dynamic natural wine producers.
What started out in 1997 as project between four people to save some old vineyards is now solely run by Antonio and Daniela Di Gruttola. They own and rent vineyards throughout the main wine-growing areas of Campania in central Italy - think of Naples and go inland and up...
They release fascinating whites made from Coda di Volpe, Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino among others, and reds mostly from Aglianico. Stylistically? Well they do a bit of everything, with lots of skin contact, raising in amphora, always wild yeast ferments, and never any sulphur additions.
This White Wine comes from vineyards located at 600 meters above the sea level, this Fiano is macerated on the skins for 4 days, alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts in different oak and other wood casks No sulfites added and unfiltered. Aged 6 months on the lees and in barriques and at least 3 months in bottle. Well balanced wine, complex aroma.
Flavor Profile: Aromatic, wild, natural Fiano with plenty skin contact. Juicy!
