Description

The Fiano di Avellino Rocca del Principe was born in Lapio, a town in Irpinia, an inland area of ​​Southern Italy. In its own, even if small territory two denominations agree: the Taurasi DOCG, red wine produced with Aglianico grapes and Fiano di Avellino DOCG, white wine produced with Giano grapes. The territorial subdivision of the cultivation of the aAglianico and Giano grapes is therefore permanently cut in half. The Aglianico vineyards are found almost exclusively on the southern side of the municipal territory between 450 and 500 meters above sea level. while the vineyards grown in Fiano are located, mainly on the side facing north / north-east between 500-600 meters s.l.m. This last slope was for many centuries guarded from above by a Rocca dei Principi Filangieri, which, with the strength of a rapacious eagle (symbol of the family), ruled over the territory of Lapio during the Renaissance period.
