Winemaker Sabino Loffredo has swiftly created a reputation within and beyond Italy for some of the most exquisite Greco and Fiano wines in Avellino of Campania in the south of Italy. Pietracupa was founded in 1993 by his family, starting as just 3 hectares of vineyards. The vines were chosen with the intent of showcasing the mountainous terrain of Avellino to the world. He produces limited amounts of Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, and Aglianico coming from some of the finest vines in Avellino. Both wine and winemaker share a similar mantra; staying original and faithful to the land with elegance, depth, and minerality. Due to the southern climate of Campania, the wines benefit from longer time on the vine. These coastal wines crave seafood and olive oil based dishes.
