Lapio meets Castel Tirolo. We offer a journey between two great white wine territories in Italy. On one side we are in one of the best cru of Fiano di Avellino, specifically contrada Arianello where there was once a so-called "neviera" : a well where snow was gathered to store food. From this area, today comes a spectacular Fiano di Avellino Neviera di Sopra Riserva 2019 from Rocca del Principe. Ercole Zarrella over the years has consistently shown us that he knows how to offer some of the deepest and most articulate whites on the Peninsula, capable of aging with grace and joy.
We remain in an area with northern traits, but in this case we are in a true north, with the second wine: the Alto Adige Pinot Bianco V Years Riserva 2015 from Cantina Merano. This is a white released on the market after more than 5 years after the harvest, studied down to the smallest detail, designed to bring the maximum expression of the vineyards of Tirolo, Alto Adige. We found it to be a complete, multifaceted white, iridescent from taste to taste.
Rare Wines. Two aging white wines from Campania and Alto Adige to discover.
