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.
It says quite a bit about Sabrino that he opted out of the Fiano di Avellino DOCG classification, opting to make wine on his own terms in favor of the fruit. This is one of the best Fiano wines available. Period.
Some fun words about this bottle. “It was as if posh Premier Cru Chablis had ended up on the wrong side of the tracks and done some hard time.”
