"Campania Felix": that's how the Romans spoke of this region, praising its extraordinary fertility, mild climate, and picturesque landscapes that refreshed the eyes and souls of the rich aristocrats (and more than one emperor) who spent their holidays here, leaving worries and troubles in Rome. "Felix" also because it's capable of producing great wines, some of which are mentioned in the major Latin literary works that have come down to us.
And this characteristic has come down to us: every year Campania offers us a varied and intriguing tasting table, made up of many native grape varieties, some of which are finally being truly valued, many areas, many territories, even very different from each other. Above all, it's needless to hide it, Irpinia stands out, especially thanks to its white wine production.

The protagonists are Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino, and on the latter, we want to focus with this release. DOCG since 2003, as everyone can see, the denomination is capable of offering some of the most multifaceted, deep, and long-lived whites in the Boot. The production area includes 26 municipalities between the Sabato Valley and the Calore Valley. The grape, indeed Fiano, is an ancient grape, probably present in Campania already in Roman times, whose name is officially attested for the first time in some sales documents dating back to the first half of the 13th century.

Returning to today, we can say that discovering Fiano di Avellino is certainly a very interesting journey, in which the grape becomes plastic material for the different interpretations, given by the territory and the producers. We recommend a small list of the best tasted this year, which in the Berebene 2024 guide by Gambero Rosso obtained a score of at least 90/100 (in some cases they also received the Tre Bicchieri or reached the final).
