2019 Cantina Giardino 'Fra' Falanghina

Campania, Italy

Falanghina from a parcel of thirty year old vines planted some 400 metres above sea level in Benevento. The grapes are fermented on skins for four days and aged for a year in large chestnut casks. The soils, rich in deposits from the volcano of Mount Taburno, have rendered a fine-grained, intensely mineral wine with firm tannins and a long, salty finish.

2019 Cantina Giardino 'Fra' Falanghina
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.
