Terredora di Paolo
Fiano di Avellino DOCG
Campania

Fiano di Avellino takes its name from the variety that the Latins called Vitis Apiana, referring to the sweetness of the grapes that was irresistible to bees (“api”). The varietal’s sugar content is so high that a virtually sweet sparkling wine is made in the area that has many local admirers. Years of experiment have enabled winemakers to produce a dry Fiano, a wine of great elegance and refinement with an intense aroma and a harmonious flavor. ”EX CINERE RESURGO” is a latin quote related to the legend of the Phoenix that means “I returned from the ashes”. The quote is part of the emblem of some villages near Naples, such as Torre del Greco and Castellamare di Stabia. The quote recalls the passage from the historical Mastroberardino family estate to the new Terredora di Paolo winery.
