Additional Information on Colli Di Lapio (Clelia Romano) Fiano Di Avellino 2013

Varietal: Fiano

The Fiano grapes which are native to Campania have been grown and cultivated for white wine production for a remarkable length of time. Indeed, Fiano grapes are one of the true classical grapes of Italy, being a favorite of both the Romans and the ancient Greeks, who both prized the varietal for its strong and spicy flavors, resplendent with notes of dark honey and nuts. Fiano grapes also have a beautiful and delicate floral aroma, making them a particularly complex and fascinating grape varietal, favored by those looking for a white wine with real character and unique features. For the past couple of decades, wineries in the New World have begun experimenting with Fiano grapes, with considerable success. As such, more and more people are beginning to rediscover this ancient varietal, and the stunning flavors it carries.

Region: Campania

Campania may well be Italy's oldest wine region, with a history which spans over three thousand years and has endured throughout the rising and falling of empires. Today, the region's wine industry is as strong as ever, and consistently producing excellent wines of character and distinction, thanks to the dedication the wineries of Campania have for quality over quantity, and the love they have for their traditions and time honored practices. Of course, the region is helped enormously by the ideal climatic conditions it receives on the west coast of Italy, and the fact that the soils of Campania could be amongst the finest on earth for viticulture. For thousands of years, Campania has been the beating heart of the Italian wine industry, and this is one thing which is unlikely to change any time soon.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
