Antica Hirpinia Fiano di Avellino

Wine Description

The story began in 1959 with the foundation of the first winery in Taurasi. Today, Antica Hirpinia is a private cellar, led by a group of friends who took over it in 2016 to realize a common dream: to produce the finest wines in the area. Their first step was to appoint Riccardo Cotarella as their enologist and Valeria Cesari as their consultant.

Tasting Notes

Intense and elegant. The twinkling of aromatic herbs is followed by notes of pink grapefruit. The scent of sage is in an amazing duet with passion fruit. The finish is long and intriguing.

Food Pairings

Seafood pasta, smoked salmon, and tuna steak.
