Wine Details

Rocca Del Principe Fiano di Avellino DOCG

Vineyards for the Fiano are planted on opposite north/south sides of the Arianello hillside, indisputably one of the best locations for Fiano. One side is rich in complex volcanic soils and the other in clay and calcareous soils, resulting in a lively wine with white peach, lemon, lime and crushed stone on the nose, enhanced by elegant notes of flowers and aromatic herbs. In the mouth, it is pure, fresh and juicy, finishing with outstanding length and great acidity. The Fiano di Avellino is a true expression of territory.

Recent press reviews

91

Rocca Del Principe Fiano di Avellino DOCG 2019

Vinous Media (91)- "A mix of sweet pear, lightly roasted almonds, minty herbs and smoke rises up from the 2019 Fiano di Avellino. Its textures are silky-smooth complemented by ripe orchard fruits and hints of candied lime. This remains energetic throughout, as residual acids tug at the cheeks, and hints of sour citrus slowly taper off."
