Produced with Candida, Parolise and Sorbo Serpico grapes, Fiano di Avellino has an intense straw-yellow colour with greenish shimmer. The aroma is intense and persistent.

External Reviews for Feudi di San Gregorio Fiano di Avellino DOCG
Fiano di Avellino 2009 - 90 points, Wine Spectator/ Elegant, yet deceptively dense, this firm white balances green melon, pear and blanched almond notes with floral layers of spice, pine and wild herbs, as the silky finish stretches out.
Feudi di San Gregorio, a modern expression of a centuries-old tradition of passion and dedication to the land, is Campania’s premier winemaking estate. Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly-acclaimed winery was established in 1986. Since then, it has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varieties by placing a contemporary spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Throughout its short yet prolific history, the estate’s proprietors have cultivated Campania’s finest vineyards and worked closely with some of Italy’s best enologists. The results have been remarkable — the wines of Feudi di San Gregorio meet time and again with stellar reviews and consistently garner international critical acclaim.

Fiano di Avellino 2010 - 89 points, Wine Advocate/ The 2010 Fiano di Avellino is rather subtle at first, until the aromas and flavors blossom on the mid-palate. Ash, minerals, cured meats and juicy peaches are some of the nuances that emerge from this rich, textured white. There is plenty of complexity and personality in the glass in this typical, benchmark Fiano from Avellino.
Fiano di Avellino 2009 - 3 Stars, The New York Times/ Ripe yet refreshing with rich flavors of citrus, nuts and herbs round, polished finish.
Fiano di Avellino 2009 - 4+ stars, Restauant Wine/ The Fiano is refined in character (violet, lemon oil, lime, roasted nut), full bodied, smoothly textured, with good balance and length. It finishes with some floral spiciness, reminiscent of rose petal and white pepper.
Fiano di Avellino 2009 - Wine Spectator/ Ripe and floral, this intense white offers fresh-cut mango, peach and grapefruit flavors on a firm frame, as notes of hot stone fill out the vivid finish.
Fiano di Avellino 2009 - 89 Points, eRobertParker.com/ The 2009 Fiano di Avellino is beautiful in this vintage. It is an especially rich, fat Fiano with great intensity in its ripe, succulent peaches and apricots that carries through to the round polished finish... proprietor Antonio Capaldo... boasts an impressive resume, replete with world-class academic credentials and stints with Lazard in Paris and McKinsey in Italy. Despite his background, Capaldo remains humble, eager to learn... all qualities which should serve him very well going forward. Noted agronomist Pierpaolo Sirch oversees the work in the vineyards and cellar.
