Colli di Lapiowww.collidilapio.it
Colli di Lapio was founded in 1994 and is located in the heart of Lapio, in the province of Avellino. Lapio itself is a small farming town 480 metres above sea level with a dry climate and crucially large diurnal temperature differences, essential in the production of quality aromatic white wines. Fiano thrives here, producing aromatic but structured wines that are ideal with food. The winery won the coveted award of best white wine of the year for the ‘Vini d’Italia’ guide in 2010 with their Fiano di Avellino 2008. Its Fiano 2010 received the Tre Bicchieri in the 2012 Vini d'Italia guide.
Other wines by this producer
This single vineyard Taurasi shows intense aromas of ripe dark black fruit.
Dry and supple, the flavours of super-ripe dark cherries and plums are matched on the palate by smoke, bacon fat, tobacco, cedar, leather from the oak ageing and ripe, velvety tannins.
Highly aromatic nose of honey, lemon, liquorice and tarragon, plus a saline, brothy character. Strong acidity and concentrated, piquant flavors of citrus rind and minerals give this very impressive yet somehow delicate wine great intensity. Finishes very long and firm.
