Producer In the large wine production of Campania Region DonnaChiara, between the hills of Avellino, is distinguished for its tradition, its modern appeal and its determination. Founded in 2005 by Chaira and her husband Umberto Petitto, the winery Donnachiara is a significant property. It was helped to preserve the best traditions of an area naturally suited to viticulture since Roman times. The passionate Petitto family follows the activities from the cultivation of the vineyards, to the final vinification process. For five generations we have produced brilliant results through the detail of activities in the vineyards and with the work done in the cellar. Actually Donnachiara wines represent the best expression of the "made in Campania", drawing strength from their origins and regional quality expressed through the "style" and the products of culture. DonnaChiara winery has a deep connection to the territory of Irpinia and with the specific intent of enhancing the typical varieties of the area. The mission of DonnaChiara, is to invest in the secular tradition of viticulture in the Irpinia Region, emphasising the most typical features and rediscovering the scents and the flavors of the Irpinian wines. Today in the 27 hectares of vineyards, Donnachiara cultivates Aglianico, Fiano and Greco di Tufo. These grapes were brought to Campania a millennia ago by the ancient Greeks and spread to many areas of Southern Italy. Our soil provide the best results for DonnaChiara wines expressing the great quality of these grapes with thanks to the great expertise of the technicians in the cellar. Infact the winery has the most advanced technologies available today. Innovative tools for temperature control, vinification and aging of the great red grape of Aglianico and the fragrant well structured white grapes Fiano and Greco. Product quality is the philofophical focus of the Donnachiara Brand. Our family tradition is the heart, the soul and the basis of which the natural foundations we build on. We give the passion to the land and grapes in order to produce wines of great strength and noble character. Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2017 Fiano di Avellino is nicely put together, with its various moving parts working together in smooth unison. The bouquet is shapely and bright with tangy citrus, peach, cantaloupe melon, cut flower and crushed gravel. What stands out most is the quality and the intensity of those nicely presented primary aromas. The wine is not unnecessarily complicated, but it absolutely gets the job done if you are looking for freshness, energy, personality and value pricing. Some 25,000 bottles were produced. (Dec 2018). Vinous 89 points - Bright straw. White peach and apple aromas. Fresh, juicy and youthfully unevolved, presenting simple, tactile flavors of pomaceous orchard fruit, spices and herbs. Possesses good fruit, but finishes a little simply, with subdued aromatic lift typical of the vintage. (Nov 2018) Colour Straw yellow with a light green touch Bouquet Delicate bouquet which elegantly combines hints of almonds,walnuts and floral notes (acacia and may) with notes of tropical fruit Palate Dry, warm, smoothe, good body, a real pleasure to taste
