NOTESThe "Piante a Lapio" is a precious and kaleidoscopic nectar, considered among the most fascinating and involving expressions of Fiano from Campania. The vines are close to a century old and give birth to delicious fruit that, after vinification and ageing in chestnut barrels, give birth to a luminous golden liquid that conquers the nose with its bewitching rainbow of aromas of spices, hazelnut, wild herbs, acacia honey and grains of salt. The sip reveals an intense body with great personality, refined and deep.
