 Traerte (the new name of Azienda Vadiaperti) - Fiano di Avellino D.O.C.G. Aipierti 2012: fresh, deep and with a good sprint, it has hazelnut and dried fruit aromas and a Maquis and white peach finish.


Vigne Guadagno – Fiano di Avellino D.O.C.G. 2011: mineral and smoky aromas, mixed with hazelnut and spices, are the olfactory signs of a convincing and characterful wine, which comes across as sapid, full and captivating. Congratulations to this small producer from Montefredane.



Villa Raiano – Fiano di Avellino D.O.C.G. 2011: this producer has achieved an excellent result with two finalists: the 2011 Fiano unveils gradually and gives off a first series of aromas of dried fruit and Maquis, while in a second moment white flowers and exotic fruit emerge. The same happens with the flavour that starts subtly and then transforms, captivating the palate.
