i Capitani, Gaudium, Fiano di Avellino, Irpinia, DOCG, 2022, Campania, Italy

Producer Profile

The history of the farm, i Capitani, dates back more than a century, seeing its beginning in the late XIX century and all through 1900’s to reach to the present day. A story of commitment and traditions in the hinterland of Campania, exactly in Avellino province, in one of the best areas for wine making in Italy. The protagonists of this story are Cefalo family (nicknamed “i Capitani”) and the fertile hills located in Bosco Faiano district of Torre le Nocelle town in the heart of Irpinia.

A story of work and sacrifice but also of great achievements and successes. The strength and pride of a big family that betting on the job, she wanted to help make her fantastic area increasingly known and appreciated. A story of ups and downs that poetically embodies the vine’s life that every year after cutting of the winter pruning, renews its life and grows back even stronger and more lush than before.

Irpinia, hard but generous land, has ever since shown a great interest for the viticulture with highest production on the land where the hills smoothly run down the valleys of the rivers Calore and Sabato. It is here on these green hills where the vineyards of the Farm Capitani spread in the sun. Vineyards that have been for centuries the pride and boast of the farming tradition of the Cefalo family, made by vines, but, above all, made by vine-dressers that know how to listen to their land.

One big DOC and three very tight DOCG to preserve and protect the fruits of unmistakable hills.

There is no place where it is possible to produce all three DOCG at the same time, the vineyards must be placed in different areas! Only in Lapio and Montefalcione can produce in one vineyard two of them Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi but not all three.

Viticulture

Few vine stocks classify a territory in such a way as the Fiano classifies the territory of Avellino. The Fiano of Avellino DOCG Gaudium de I Capitani, a white wine with a powerful structure and a bursting personality faithfully reflects the characteristics of these territories, testifying to its calling to wine production.

Winemaking

Harvested at the start of October, pressed lightly, it undergoes a partial pre-fermentation cryo-maceration on their peelings and an alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures.

Tasting Note

Intense and persistence, with golden apple and pear smacks. Notes of pistachio and oyster shell.  Lovely and creamy on the palate with a fresh mineral edge. Just dreamy, delicious, and long lasting.

Goes well with

Excellent with fish and shellfish, and hard cheeses.

Cellaring

Don’t wait, it’s too delicious, drink it ( but you could cellar for 2-4 years).
