Cantina Giardino Sophia


Country: Italy

Region: Campania

Grapes: Greco

Vintage: 2020

Cantina Giardino make unique orange and red wine from a patchwork of old vineyards high up in the hills around Irpinia, Campania.

Sophia is Greco from the same vineyard as T’ara rà, planted at elevation in Santa Paolina. It spent almost a year on its skins in small amphorae, before being pressed off to acacia and chestnut casks to rest for a further six months. Lighter and more subtle than most of the Giardino wines, it's a beautiful haze of amber, with delicate flavours of citrus, minerals and herbs.
