Cantina Giardino - VDT Rosato Magnum (2019)

A true field blend of grapes from an old vineyard of Aglianico, Primitivo, Piedirosso and more that spent just an evening on skins before being pressed off to old casks for nine months. Fitting the vintage, this is by far the lightest and brightest Vino Rosato we’ve seen from the guys. A deep pink, with faint tannins and a pleasant bitterness on the finish, it offers refreshment in spades. - Tutto Wines

Cantina Giardino was born as a joint venture between six friends with the specific aim of preserving old vineyards and native varietals in and around Irpinia, a mountainous town in the heart of Campania, Italy. Headed by Antonio and Daniela di Gruttola, the project sources fruit from 16 distinct and often quite distant parcels. In total this represents about six hectares including a 2,5 ha plot that the couple recently purchased. From the beginning, the aim has been to source older vines (50+) from contadini who have been working traditionally for generations, but were at risk of having to abandon or uproot their land.
