Tasting Notes

"Winemaker Marco Giulioli believes this was the best vintage in the past decade, with rain just before picking not affecting the quality. Smooth, elegant, deep and concentrated with dark berries and spice on the palate. Fresh finish with a cleansing, mineral edge."

The Producer

La Guardiense

Established in 1960, La Guardiense is an important co-op located in the district of Sannio, northeast of Naples in the dramatic landscape of Italy’s Campania province. Strikingly poor in the post war years, the co-op helped lift the region from poverty by providing a reliable market for local growers’ grapes.

Today, La Guardiense has become an environment in which many other local wineries benefit from improved research and resources, with continual investments in improving long-term quality of vine and wine. La Guardiense brought the renowned winemaker and consultant Riccardo Cotarella to the co-op in 2010. Since then, Cotarella has directed vineyard and winemaking to help make La Guardiense one of the most highly-regarded wineries in Campania.
