Fiano di Avellino Clos D'Haut Villa Diamante 2022
The last territorial expression of Antoine Gaita could not come out in a better year. The Clos d'Haut was strongly desired by Antoine who had identified in this small parcel at 500 meters above sea level in the municipality of Montefredane a place where to express the peated character of Fiano.
Villa Diamante is a three-hectare winery just in Montefredane, a favorite place for the cultivation of the Fiano vine. Antoine Gaità was one of the best performers of this vine. Disappeared at the age of 60, he leaves a legacy as a true winemaker, the first to start treating fiano with white gloves. First wood but then only steel, stopping on the lees, interventions reduced to a minimum both in the vineyard and in the cellar. A work of tradition based on the conviction of the relationship between vingaiolo and vineyard because Antoine was one of those firmly convinced that the only way to taste the land is to drink wine. The territory of Fiano is thankful.
