2019 Cantina Giardino Paski
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.
From seventy year-old coda di volpe vines grown in Paternopoli and Montemarano, at 450 metres above sea level. Four days on skins before being pressed off to chestnut botti for a year. These vineyards are on calcareous marl but with higher percentage of volcanic sands on the top in comparison to other sites, which gives the wine a zingy minerality.
- Giorgio De Maria
Where: Irpinia, Campania IT
What: Coda di volpe bianco
How: The minerality in this makes us think it's a real cheese wine. Provolone should do it.
