Ciro Picariello’s tiny 7 hectare estate lies at the heart of Campania’s white
grape region of Avellino among the Irpinian hills. More precisely, he has four
hectares of Fiano and red Aglianico perched on the slopes above Summonte at 650
metres altitude on volcanic, calcareous clay and ‘pietra di rame’ (copper stone)
soils. The remaining 3 ha of Fiano and Greco are to be found 10 km away in the
village of Montefredane, at 550 meters altitude on more clay dominant soils.
This wine is a must have. An incredible expression of place, with beautiful
minerality, a lovely acid line and notes of lemon curd and spring
