Mastroberardino Fiano di Avellino DOCG 2017
Mastroberardino’s Manocalzati vineyard is located close to the town, about five kilometres North-East of Atripalda. It is entirely planted with Fiano di Avellino grapes in a soil rich in clay. This 30year-old vineyard has been the basis for the study and further development of the Fiano grape, serving as a field for the mass selection of the improvements of biotypes, then used in replanting in the estates of Santo Stefano del Sole, Lapio and Montefalcione. The Montefalcione estate too is exclusively dedicated to the production of Fiano di Avellino DOCG and was planted with a very high density system. It is characterised by typically volcanic soil, very loose and able to confer to the vineyard’s vigour and vegetative development, prerogatives for the optimal expression of an aromatic Fiano. It also represents a field of viticulture experiments for testing in place of different planting densities, use of different rootstocks and different farming systems, in order to study the adaptability and expression of the variety.
Fiano is a grape variety of ancient origins that date back to Roman times. In that period it was known as Vitis Apiana for the sweetness of its berries so pleasing to bees. After the hard period of the Sixties, during which we risked losing the ancient heritage of the native varieties of the province, the obstinate work of Antonio Mastroberardino brought back Fiano among the most cultivated vines in the province of Avellino, generating enthusiasm for the growing outside the region too.
