Straw yellow in the glass with an elegant nose that is delightfully fruity featuring white peach, nuts and white flowers. In the mouth its flavor is rich, soft and fresh with a long and persistent finish. A great wine to go along with seafood dishes, white meats, or mozzarella cheese.
The Romano family has had a passion for viticulture for generations. The estate was established in 1994. It is managed by Clelia together with her husband Angelo and her son and daughter Federico and Carmela and with the collaboration of the oenologist Angelo Pizzi and the agronomist Maurizio Petrillo. Colli di Lapio is located at Araniello, a small district of the commune of Tufo in Irpinia. The altitude is approx. 550 meters above sea level, the climate is dry and airy and the soil is mainly calcareous-clayey. All these conditions together with a wide day-night temperature range make this an extremely suitable zone for the growing of the Fiano grape varietal. Furthermore, Lapio is one of the few communes where the Fiano di Avellino varietal is found. This estate focussed on enhancing the quality of the Fiano varietal producing an excellent wine that won awards since its first vintage.
