      “Alèxandros” Greco di Tufo DOCG 2016

      Alexandros is a beautifully complex and expressive white from Campania. The aromas of light stone fruit, flowers and a fine minerality come together in a harmonious fragrance. Crisp clean taste with a fresh finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Ripe apple and floral notes are layered with lemon curd and poached apricot flavors in this well-cut, light- to medium-bodied white. Offers a minerally, lightly spiced finish." Wine Spectator

      "Stone fruit features prominently here, partly in the form of peach pit. There is also elderflower and papaya up for grabs. A full, rich palate that remains tangy and driven on layers of fruit. Fennel undertones. Long finish." James Suckling

      "Bright and dense in the mouth, offering Greco-typical chewiness along with fresh, clean, ripe tropical fruit, peach and pear flavors that linger impressively. Finishes with saline and bittersweet herb nuances. Much livelier, deeper and fresher than the 2015 and 2017 vintages of this wine." Vinous

      Alexandros is a beautifully complex and expressive white from Campania. The aromas of light stone fruit, flowers and a fine minerality come together in a harmonious fragrance. Crisp clean taste with a fresh finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright straw. The slightly subdued nose speaks of the warm vintage, offering riper-than-usual aromas (for this wine) of tropical fruit and sweet spices. Then bright, dense and juicy, presenting citrus-accented papaya and passionfruit notes. Finishes long and fresh, with noteworthy vibrancy." Vinous

      "This light- to medium-bodied white is framed by sleek acidity and a minerally underpinning of smoke and saline accents, along with flavors of golden apple, bitter almond and lemon rind." Wine Spectator

      "A steely and focused greco with lemons, dried mango and sliced apples. Full-bodied, fresh and vivid. Always energetic and bright." James Suckling

      "The Colli di Lapio 2018 Greco di Tufo Romano Clelia Alèxandros shows instant freshness and purity with yellow or white fruit aromas of honeysuckle, fragrant peach and passion fruit. The age of the vines (now 25 years old), the altitude of the vineyards (some 550 meters above sea level) and limestone clay soils all contribute to the radiance and tonic accessibility of this Greco. There is a pretty mineral or salty signature on the finish. Only 4,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker

      Fiano di Avellino DOCG 2017

      Opulent fruit, sage and thyme. Fresh and very agile it convinces in taste until it finally reaches its persevering finale. A terroir full of character. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Golden-tinged yellow. Aromas and flavors of orange juice, tangerine peel, peach and botanical herbs. Dense and juicy, offering fresh flavors similar to the aromas, lifted by harmonious but vibrant acidity and noteworthy salinity. Finishes long and clean with building lemony cut. Because of the hot growing season, the vibrancy and verve of this estate’s best Fiano wines of the past is lacking in this wine; furthermore, it exudes an almost atypical creaminess." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "Wonderful fiano with sliced melon and hints of lemon rind. Hot stones, too. Full-bodied, layered and extremely flavorful with so much fruit and character. Gorgeous." James Suckling

      "There is a nice intensity to the 2018 Fiano di Avellino Romana Clelia, but you need to wait for it.

This wine cruises steadily somewhere between second and third gear; however, there is interesting complexity and depth as well." Robert Parker

      Taurasi “Vigna Andrea” DOCG 2011

      Taurasi Vigna Andrea - a rich Aglianico with excellent depth. In the bouquet typical aromas of dark cherries, plums, smoke, cedar wood and tobacco, which develop wonderfully in the course of time. Complex on the palate with a good portion of velvety tannins, a deep and masculine aftertaste. Good storage and maturing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep ruby. Underbrush and smoke complicate ripe black cherry and wild herbs on the nose. Bright, juicy and very dense; saline nuances nicely frame the dark plum, blackberry, tar and licorice flavors. Finishes long and precise, displaying building black cherry sweetness and really impeccable balance. This outstanding Aglianico will easily last and improve another decade in a good cellar, but is so soft and charming that it can be enjoyed now."Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    About the winemakers
    Colli di Lapio
    Campania
    Colli di Lapio

    In the small Campanian winery Colli di Lapio in Arianiello, a hamlet belonging to the small village of Lapio, the traditional way of living, thinking and producing wine is still used today. With her white and red wines from the indigenous Fiano and Aglianico grape varieties typical of the province of Avellino, the modest owner Clelia Romano and her husband Angelo have made a name for themselves at home and abroad. On the one hand, this is due to the reliably high quality of the grapes growing in the Arianiello, Stazzone and Scarpone vineyards, which reach altitudes of up to 550 metres. On the other hand, the reputation is also due to the certified designation of origin and the completely ecological cultivation. The very limited wines - of the red drops based on Aglianico, for example, only a few thousand bottles are produced at a time - are praised again and again by wine critics.

    While the children Carmela and Federico are already eagerly and joyfully involved in the family winery, the three grandchildren are initially only responsible for a few labels as namesakes. Angelo, on the other hand, as a long experienced winegrower in the Irpinia hill and mountain landscape, knows almost every pebble stone. The vines on the only six hectare area are not only blown by the wind, but are also partly sunny all day long. The vines also benefit from very calcareous loamy soils and strong temperature fluctuations between day and night. It is characteristic of Colli di Lapio that sulphur and copper-based active substances are used in the environmentally friendly work in the vineyard. In addition, the family has planted the alfalfa crop, which is well tolerated even in cold winters, in order to supply the soil with more nitrogen.

    Under the leadership of Clelia's father Pasquale, the family had previously only sold grapes to neighbouring winegrowers, but now handles the entire value chain. The particular techniques used by the farm, located in the province of Avellino, include harvesting in the second half of October, partial fermentation on dying yeasts in stainless steel tanks and bottling in bottles between spring and autumn after harvesting. If the wines in the tiny cellar do not mature in tanks, they usually age in new barriques. The authentic spicy white wines prepared from Fiano are slim and very long-lasting. For many experts, they are among the best drops ever pressed from this variety. (superiore.de)

    "Take the most popular catchwords of the wine language - Eins-a-Lage, Spitzenterroir, winegrowers with body and soul and minerality - throw them around without inhibitions and already the winery Colli di Lapio is accurately described."Gambero Rosso
