Giluga - Altavigna

Fresh and elegant expression of this extraordinary white grape variety which, thanks to the ideal habitat of Irpinia, reaches levels of absolute excellence. Vineyards are cultivated in Lapio at 550 meters above sea level on calcareous-clayey soils. The grapes are harvested by hand in the second ten days of October. After a soft pressing of the grapes, the must ferments in cement vats with maceration on the skins for a couple of days.
Aged in oak barrels for 12 months, it is not subject to any clarification treatment. Great complexity and aromatic richness, elegant bouquet with scents of white flowers, hints
hints of citrus and woody traits. The sip is deep, intense.

Historical background

It was the Greeks who brought the original Fiano grape variety, “Vitis Apicia”, to Italy. The first vines were planted in Lapio, a place named after the grape, the municipality where Fiano is still produced today. In turn, the name “Vitis Apicia” or “Apina” derives from the characteristic of this sweet-smelling grape to attract swarms of bees to the vineyards. From Apina came “Apiana” and from this “Afiana”, hence Fiano.

Production area

The production area of the DOCG is partly included in the Partenio regional park and consists of the Piana di Serino and an extensive hilly strip at an altitude of between 300 and 600 m above sea level, bordered to the west by the Partenio mountain range and to the east by the Terminio-Tuoro range. It may be produced in the entire administrative territory of the 28 municipalities of: Avellino, Aiello del Sabato, Atripalda, Candida, Capriglia Irpina, Cesinali, Contrada, Forino, Grottolella, Lapio, Manocalzati, Mercogliano, Montefalcione, Monteforte Irpino, Montefredane, Montoro Inferiore, Ospedaletto d’Alpinolo, Parolise, Prata di Principato Ultra, Pratola Serra, Salza Irpina, San Michele di Serino, San Potito Ultra, Santa Lucia di Serino, Sant’Angelo a Scala, Santo Stefano del Sole, Sorbo Serpico and Summonte, all in the province of Avellino.


The soils are characterised by the presence of clay (as much as 50 per cent of fine soil) with little siliceous-calcareous skeleton, although it is often mixed with silt or sand. This richness in clay is a very positive factor for viticulture as it counteracts periods of summer drought with a more regular ripening of the grapes and a good fixed acidity content. They have a low limestone content and an even lower presence of humus, organic matter in general (less than 2%) and nitrogen. Assimilable phosphorus is also scarce while exchangeable potassium and magnesium are abundantly represented. The latter is particularly important for both the lignification processes and the organoleptic characteristics of the wine. Boron, copper, manganese and zinc are also well represented.


The climate is continental with large temperature ranges and low rainfall. Sunny days are very high as are frequent spring frosts, even late frosts. The daily hikes are, from July to September, very much increased.
