Fiano di Avellino | Vesevo
About The Producer
The Vesevo estate is situated in the high, mountainous area of Avellino, deep in the Irpinian hills of Campania and is one of Italy’s most exciting wine producing areas for white wine. The vineyards are situated at between 450 and 550 metres above sea level, and are always subject to a cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. This same breeze has, over the centuries, blown volcanic ash from Vesuvius inland to give the soil here a volcanic character rich in minerals. The name Vesevo is actually the old name for Vesuvius. Despite being so far south, this is one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest due to the large differences between temperatures at night and during the day.
About The Wine
Thanks to the favourable condition of the land and the microclimate, the winemakers and agronomists have carried out a careful selection of the best vineyard practises and today modern technology and wine making experience enable Vesevo to produce wines that embody the best interpretation of thousands of years of wine making tradition in the region. The Fiano di Avellino does not undergo malolactic fermentation and sees no oak, thus retaining the characteristics of the grape. Fiano is a variety that is earning a lot of attention at the moment and may well be one of the next trendy grapes to come out of Italy.
Straw yellow in colour, the wine has wonderful notes of white flower and tropical fruit. The volcanic slopes ensure an enjoyable acidity adds character and balance to the wine.
