Colli di Lapio

Lapio, Province of Avellino

Clelia Romano took over her family’s vineyards in 1994 and makes what many consider to be Italy’s best Fiano. Ian D’Agata, noted Italian wine author, says “Fiano may well be Italy’s greatest native white grape” and Colli di Lapio “arguably Italy’s single best white wine”

    Organic

The vineyards are around 500 metres and well protected from the surrounding mountains, bringing cool nights that allow for late ripening.

Colli di Lapio is a practicing organic estate. Integrated insect and disease control is followed and only copper and sulfur-based products are used if required. However, the breezy, arid climate makes mold and insects a rare occurrence. The estate fertilises with organic manure and alfalfa is sown between the rows of vines to provide nitrogen to the soil and then tilled in as green manure. At bottling minimal sulfur is added to the wines.
