The name of the Fiano vine seems to derive from a Ligurian population, overwhelmed by the Romans and subsequently migrated to Campania, where over the centuries it has found its natural habitat. In Irpinia it finds its best cultivation area, with excellent ripening, thanks to cold winters and cool summers, with clear and decisive temperature ranges. The best soils, volcanic and clayey, are between 400 and 700 meters above sea level. It must be said that it has spread, with great success, also in Puglia and, recently, in Sicily. Fiano is characterized by refined and complex aromas. Its marked acidity favors the production of long-lived and structured wines. For vinification, steel is mainly used and not wood and the wine often undergoes a period of aging in the bottle to enhance its character and aromatic richness. It is a fine and elegant wine, with both fruity and floral notes. On the palate, it is a velvety and warm wine, with good minerality and excellent acidity. The reference denomination is the Fiano di Avellino DOCG, but it is also found in other denominations from Campania, Puglia and beyond.
