Entirely Fiano of 20-30 year-old vines from just under a hectare comprised of volcanic limestone soil in the region of Avellino. The grapes are hand-harvested, rigorously sorted and fermented spontaneously. The wine ages for 8 months in neutral oak barrels before bottling and resting a few months longer before release.
Expressive and profuse, the nose is a dazzling display of white apricot, Meyer lemon, orange oil, white sage and raw almond. The palate layers crisp orchard fruit on top of marjoram, jasmine, and salted nuts. This is a serious, complex and deeply concentrated wine with both freshness and intensity in spades. Give this air if you want to drink it now, but time in the cellar will be well rewarded.
