Introduction

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 mineral character, that not only show attractive exotic flavours in youth, but also develop and evolve intriguing notes of brioche and almond.

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