Pietraincatenata 2017 Luigi Maffini Fiano Cilento DOP
Pietraincatenata by Luigi Maffini is a fiano produced in Castellabate (SA), on the hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. The grapes are harvested by hand between the end of September and the middle of October, are subjected to a soft pressing process and then refined in barriques for 18 months. The wine shows a golden yellow color; the nose immediately reveals the smell of exotic and candied fruit and the palate is dense and soft, with a long finish.

Luigi Maffini's goal has always been to be able to "shape the earth to be able to taste it" and we can confirm with absolute certainty that he has succeeded very well. Since 1996, the year in which his winery was founded, with constant passion and dedication, Luigi has followed the care of his vineyards from which, with rigorous vinification, he creates wines that have a modern imprint, but that do not betray their deep and essential bond at all with the earth. Flanked by his friend Luigi Moio, his range of Aglianico and Fiano managed to find a way to channel the innate generosity of this area of Campania, with well-balanced and harmonic labels. Not many are the years that see him engaged in the work of winegrower, but the successes obtained immediately with his labels have led him to restructure the company founded by his father in the 70s. Today the area under vines is made up of 4 hectares of property, almost entirely replanted, using historic vines such as Aglianico and Fiano, and 2 hectares of Piedirosso and Sangiovese in rented condition. It is precisely the territoriality of Luigi Maffini's wines that makes the winery a must if you want to know and fully understand the soul and flavors of the Cilento terroir: wines that can amaze and fascinate.
