2018 Cantina Giardino Bianco Chianzano
Cantina Giardino owns and rents vineyards in all the historical wine-growing areas, from Paternopoli and Montemarano in Taurasi, to Santa Paolina in the Greco di Tufo zone and Lapio in the Fiano di Avellino zone; amazing terroirs that deserve more attention.
This vintage is a blend of coda di volpe bianco and greco from Montemarano, which has a very different type of soil to that of the Greco di Tufo zone, mostly calcareous marl with limestone and clay. Five days maceration on skins then part goes to chestnut botti and part into amphora. A bit more rustic than the 2019s but an absolute pleasure to drink.
