Exultet 2022 Fiano di Avellino DOCG Quintodecimo
FIANO DI AVELLINO | CONTROLLED AND GUARANTEED DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN
Exultet is an elegant and refined interpretation of Fiano di Avellino. It is a cru produced exclusively with grapes from a single Fiano vineyard located in Lapio. It presents a bright yellow color with green highlights and crisp varietal aromas of linden, acacia and thyme. Dense and continuous in structure, it develops aromas of exotic fruit, candied citrus and honey in a very slight mineral matrix. Its particular elegance also derives from the short stay, during fermentation, in small oak barrels. It is a long-lived wine that can age well even for several decades due to its richness in aroma precursors and its freshness and integrity of taste. The name given to the wine originates from the Exultet of Mirabella Eclano in which a tribute to bees is also reported. Exultets are liturgical scrolls from the southern Middle Ages. They are a kind of ante litteram multimedia product consisting of sheets of parchment sewn together on which the text of the benedictio cerei is transcribed, accompanied by musical notations and illustrated by miniatures running in the opposite direction to the writing.
