Campania, Italy

Campania, in Southern Italy, is home to the most DOCG’s (denominazione di origine controllata e garantita) than any other region in the south, which is the superior and highest classification given to a designated area of Italy. Campania has a varied landscape with mountains, valleys, and coastal plains allowing for a vast diversity amongst grapes being grown here. Arguably the best white wines from this region are from the grapes Fiano or Greco. The finer versions of the wines can age and continue to develop in bottle. Aglianico is the premier black grape variety producing a deep color with black fruit flavors, high tannin, and high acidity. Aglianico can also age for many years developing earthy and forest characteristics. For Aglianico, the greatest forms have said to be found in Taurasi DOCG.

Campanian husband and wife and winemaking duo, Aurelia Fabrizio and Ercole Zarrella, immediately commanded the attention of critics and consumers alike through the sheer breadth of aromatics, minerals and compelling nuances displayed in their substantial Fiano di Avellino.

Their philosophy is a simple one: low production in the vineyards means higher quality in the cellars. This principle informs all their decisions throughout production. The duo regularly performs green-harvests and employs no chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

Though their first estate-bottled vintage was only in 2004, these experienced growers regularly boast 3 Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso for their stellar Fiano.
