Cantina Giardino

Paski Campania Bianco Coda di Volpe 2020

Perhaps the best Coda di Volpe i've ever had
60yo vines, 4 days maceration and 30% of the mass fermented in chestnut barriques; after that 12 months in stainless steel.
Wine that truly is alive
It feels like still fermenting(but it's not)
It makes me picture kimchi, ginger and daikon
It has this tingling fruit and a mineral tension
Background of honey and gunpowder plus a decoration of spring flowers
It goes without saying how highly i consider Cantina Giardino, the barrels they use are all crafted by a local artisan with local woods among chestnuts(like in this case), cherry, figs or others that might slip out of my mind at present.
This is a wine made of beauty with no make up.
It's long and refreshing and super enjoyable.

Volcanic? Definitely needs food. Lots of acid and minerals. — 19 hours ago

Aged, cru version. Not easy for Fiano producers to get right. Not overly oaky but still round and a bit disjointed. — 8 days ago
