Colli di Lapio Fiano di Avellino
WINE TYPE: White
APPELLATION: Fiano di Avellino DOCG
At her estate in the Colli di Lapio, Clelia Romano has only 2.8 hectares (about 7 acres) of vineyard, in four tiny plots. With her family, she produces only 800-900 cases per year of beautiful wine. At an elevation of 550 meters, ripening comes late in the season, and full ripeness can only be achieved by keeping the crop very small. The low yields give wines that are splendidly balanced, with excellent extract and intense flavors.
This fiano shows aromatics which are fresh and elegant with notes of white peach, nuts and white flowers. On the palate, it is both rich and soft, with a medium- to full-body and a very long finish. Amazing food wine!!!
