A rich, orange wine made of the native white grape called Coda di Volpe. A variety is thought to be as old as the Roman Empire and has been making something of a comeback lately. Mineral and salty, but with intense black tea and marmalade elements from the skin contact.
From the mouth of the importer (Louis/Dressner):
"Cantina Giardino was born as a joint venture between six friends with the specific aim of preserving old vineyards and native varietals 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 including 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."
