Fiano di Avellino D.O.C.G.

Colle dei Cerri is a wine produced from a Fiano Cru planted in Salza Irpina in 1995, at 550 metres altitude, with an optimal exposure of the vineyards that ensures the slow and perfect ripening of the grapes that, after pressed, will fermentate in wood with a long stop for 10 months. This stop in the cellar offers a very structured wine, complex at the nose and juicy at the palate, very long and persistent.
