Fiano di Avellino, Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG)
Lapio (Av), Italy
Our Fiano grapes grow in vineyards on the hills surrounding Lapio in the Arianiello area, at an altitude of approx.. 500 meters a.s.l. on soil of calcareous clay, with limestone and volcanic sediments. The grapes grow in rows in an upwards trained vertical shoot position (Guyot system).
The harvest is done by hand from the second week of October.
The grapes are traditionally cold soaked for 12 hours at a temperature of 10°C, and then slowly squeezed in a press machine. This is followed by a fermentation of 15 days at a temperature of 18°C in steel tanks.
The wine is bottled in the spring following the harvest, after which it rests for another 2 or 3 months in the bottle before it is ready for consumption.
