A fine white wine from Campania that offers a seductive, refined and fresh expression
An essential reference among fine wines from the south of Italy, the Mastroberardino estate testifies to a unique winegrowing heritage. For over 300 years, 10 generations of winegrowers have succeeded one another from father to son, all driven by passion and the desire to highlight the unique terroir of Campania. The family's historic winery is located in Atripalda. The estate is now represented by Piero Mastroberardino.
Mastroberardino reigns over an exceptional wine-growing heritage comprising 250 hectares of vines that spread over 17 different estates in various regions of Campania, including Irpinia.
A reference among fine Campania wines, Stilèma Fiano di Avellino DOCG is the result of a long project that pays tribute to Antonio Mastroberardino, to his love for his land, his vines and his wines. Known as the "archaeologist" of vines, Antonio Mastroberardino has worked all his life to preserve the organoleptic qualities of the grape varieties depending on the terroir. The Stilèma project was born at the beginning of the year 2000, carrying out various experimental projects. This project led to the selection of pre-phylloxera clones while reviewing the protocols both in the vineyard and in the cellar. This project has thus helped to reaffirm the identity of the wines of Ipinia by participating in the wine revolution that is driving the Campania region. Over the years, a whole series of measures has been implemented under the name "Stilèma". The aim of Stilèma is to provide an understanding of the winemaking style of the native varieties of Ipinia such as Greco, Fiano and Aglianico. In 2015, the first experimentation of the Stilèma project took place with vintages featuring the Fiano and Aglianico varietals.
The fourth vintage of this wine, 2018 is the first to be produced as Riserva. This distinction highlights, according to the new regulations of the appellation, a prolonged ageing process that favours the wine's optimal quality. This wine is made from vineyards located between Montefalcione and Manocalzati. These soils are characterised by clay, limestone and sand, depending on the plot. This mosaic gives the wines structure, freshness, minerality and a rich aromatic palette.
Vinification and ageing
Alcoholic fermentation precedes malolactic fermentation. Approximately 10% of the wines are fermented and aged for 12 months in wooden vats. The wine is aged on its lees for 24 months. Thanks to this long ageing period on the lees, the wines have a remarkable longevity and sapid expression on the palate, a typical feature of fine white wines from Irpinia.
100% Fiano di Avellino.
