Tu — Vino Rosato 2020
A Wine That
is totally spellbinding. It’s hard to know where to begin — this red/white grape field blend rosé has the colour of a lava lamp, but this isn’t just about fun. Think Play that Funky Music — so much fun to dance to, yet also a classic. Full of raspberry and cherry aromas and with a dash of lavender and thyme, be prepared to fall in love. We did!

Where and How?
This comes from the hillsides of Campania in Italy, from organically farmed old vines. The vineyard is a true field blend of grapes — both red and white — located in Montemarano. The grapes are Aglianico, Primitivo, Piedirosso, Coda di Volpe and more!
The grapes macerated for two days with the juice, to extract a little colour and extra flavour. The grapes were then pressed, and the wine fermented naturally in old chestnut casks, where it aged for six months before being bottled unfixed, unfiltered and without sulfites.
As winemaker Daniela de Gruttola explains, the hillsides of Campania are the fake south. You might expect big, rich wines from southern Italy, but here — with old vines planted to traditional methods at high elevation — the opposite is possible. The wines are all about freshness, acidity and purity. Take these natural conditions and pair them with an experimental, forward-thinking mindset that also nods to the historical way of doing things, and you end up with the captivating cuvées of Cantina Giardino.
"We make wine according to local tradition,” says Daniela. “We don't use the term ‘natural wine’ because we first need to regain the term ‘wine’. Conventional wine should have a label. This is real wine, and the other is not. Our passion is to drink the wines that were always made in this way, when the winemaker would never have added anything during the winemaking process."
