Guido Marsella, Fiano di Avellino 2019
Fiano di Avellino
A pale golden colour in the glass. Scents of tropical fruits with hints of cream and a puff of delicate smoke. On the palate vibrant and fresh with notes of honeydew melon and citrus fruits. The finish is long and refreshing.
An excellent accompaniment to fish and seafood. Try with crab soufflé, spaghetti con le vongole (with clams, garlic and parsley)
Guido Marsella's vineyards are in the Partenio Regional Park, at an altitude of around 600 metres. The hilly terrain, the high altitude, the clayey loamy soil, rich in volcanic elements, with a rocky structure, and the presence of favourable winds all contribute to the health of the vines, the preservation of environmental balance and low yields, in order to favour quality. This is one of the best terroirs for the cultivation of Fiano, a very ancient vine that has always been tied to the history of wine-making in Campania and to the traditions of the area, as well as Greco di Tufo and Falanghina. In the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and pressed and each process is carried out in steel, at a low temperature to always guarantee the clarity and aromatic purity of the wines. Ageing takes place on the lees in steel and can last up to 12 months.
Guido Marsella was one of the pioneers of the rediscovery and development of Fiano di Avellinoo wine and the Summonte area, which is now considered a cru that gives the wines a recognisable and distinctive style. After working as a building contractor for the family business, Guido, who loved the countryside, bought land in the Summonte area, in Iripinia, and founded the winery in 1995. He was the first Fiano producer to release his wines on the market a year after the harvest, in a mature state, inaugurating a new approach which was later taken by other producers. Today, backed by years of experience and prestigious accolades, Guido has chosen to wait two years after harvesting to release some of his wines, reinterpreting the territory in terms of aromatic complexity and longevity.
