2016 Cantina Giardino 'Le Fole' Aglianico

Campania, Italy

The grapes, Aglianico, a local varietal, are from a remote vineyard around seventy five years old, planted almost 500 metres above sea level. The juice is macerated for about a month and two years élevage in old chestnut casks. Brimming with complexity, this is a powerful and full-bodied red. Rich with the smell of red fruits and spices, the mouth feels full but well-balanced, with a distinct fruity freshness. For those of us who are a fan of rustic, earth-driven wines, Aglianico is a star.

2016 Cantina Giardino 'Le Fole' Aglianico
About the maker

From the rolling hills of Campania, organically grown local varietals and always naturally fermented, Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola also maintain an entertaining Instagram if you feel so inclined.

Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola tend to and preserve the region's historic varietals, whilst also following a similarly aged style of winemaking. The volcanic rich soil and fruit vines are all managed by hand and organically by the couple. The wines never have any additions and unfiltered, often aged in casks made from local wood. The wines are left to ferment naturally with no temperature control and this can continue for months without risk of spoiling the wine.
