2018 Cantina Giardino Sophia
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.
Greco from the same vineyard as T’ara rà, planted at elevation in Santa Paolina. This spent six months on its skins in small amphorae, before being pressed off to acacia and chestnut casks to rest for a further six months. This is the lightest and most delicate Sophia we can remember, a beautiful haze of amber, with delicate flavours of citrus, minerals and herbs. Tutto Wines
