Lapilli wines come from the Avellino Province of Campagnia of Southern Italy. The volcanic layers of soil help to create stunning mineral-driven and memorable wines. The indigenous varietals here have had thousands of years of adaption, finding balance in volcanic soils, high altitudes and cooling Mediterranean breezes.
Fiano di Avellino DOCG is an appellation for white wine, located in the Avellino province within the Campania region and is regarded as the finest expression of (and only DOCG for) the Fiano grape. It is one of Italy’s very best white wine designations. While Fiano is grown in various other parts of Campania, it flourishes in this area thanks to Avellino’s high altitude and close proximity to the Apennine Mountains. The benefits include a mild micro-climate, large diurnal temperature variations and mineral-rich, volcanic and calcareous soils.
The grapes are soft-pressed and the must ferments for 15-20 days at a controlled temperature, 60°F, in stainless steel tanks. The wine rests on the lees for several weeks to acquire volume and complexity before bottling.
