Antonio de Gruttola

A true field blend of grapes red and white from an old vineyard in Montemarano. Aglianico, Primitivo, Piedirosso, Coda di Volpe and more spent two days on skins, before being pressed off to old chestnut casks for nine months. There is a beautiful brightness to the fruit here, with black cherries and a pleasant bitterness offering refreshment in spades.

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.

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 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.
