Introduction

By Paul Caputo

Located in the heart of Irpinia, in Italy’s southern Campania region, Fiano di Avellino is one of the most famous white wines in the country. And for good reason. It has the potential to produce wines of exceptional intensity and mineralify that not only demonstrate attractive exotic flavours in youth but will also develop and evolve fiving notes of brioche and almond.

Like other DOCG territories there is an increased awareness of which villages produce the which kind of wines. Montefalcione and Lapio are well known as important villages are capable of producing wines with excellent mineral balance.
