It is believed to have originated in the Lapio municipality, East of Avellino. Its presence in Puglia dates back to the 12th century, thanks to Charles II of Anjou who wanted Fiano planted in the royal vineyards in Puglia.
The pedoclimatic conditions in Salento are well-suited to Fiano, allowing it to acclimatise perfectly while retaining its specific and original characteristics. So much so that it is considered today to be one of the white grape varieties that best represents Puglia.
Wine produced using Fiano grapes is characterised by an intense straw-yellow colour, releasing fruity and floral notes on the nose, with a good structure on the palate and rich in flavour.
