Antonio and Daniela De Gruttola seek out old vineyards in Irpinia, high in the hills of Campania (southern Italy). The vines are set at altitude and are planted over the region’s vibrant volcanic soils. Vineyard work is done by hand, organically and a combination of great farming and low yields results in healthy, characterful fruit. In the cantina, Antonio takes a no-nonsense approach with the intention of letting this terroir express itself in full. The grapes ferment naturally without temperature control and fermentation can continue for months.  

Wines are raised in a combination of terracotta amphorae (large, clay vessels mostly associated with the ancient Greeks) and large casks made from local woods and bottled unfiltered, with no additions at all. The resulting wines are singular, vivid expressions of grape and place.
