Fiano di Avelino Pietracupa
Founded in 1993, the 3 hectares of vineyards were chosen with the express purpose of showcasing Montefredane to the wine world. Located in the province of Avellino on elevated, mountainous terrain, they produce limited quantities of Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, and Aglianico. The wines follow a similar ideology to Loffredo as original and faithful to the land. They show elegance, depth, and mineral character - though Loffredo himself is more of an extrovert! The wines are ready for release after bottling but have excellent age-ability, becoming more beautiful as they gain complexity in the bottle.
Robust and expansive nose with refined fragrances of jasmine, golden delicious apples, candied violets and a strong mineral disgression. Herbal, almost smokey, with crushed rock. A substantial and aristocratic palate with a marked acidity and a vein of citrus that echoes throughout the fine, long and slightly almond finish. So clean and precise.
