Product reviews
"Vivid straw. Peach and apricot aromas and flavors are rich and ripe and more in the style of the year than of Kratos (which is usually a fresh, vibrant white). Showcases very good balance thanks to lovely juicy cut that lifts the long, saline, balsamic finish."
91 Points Ian D'Agata, Vinous Nov 18

The Fiano d'Avellino Kratos is from grapes from both his vineyard parcels. One is overlooking the Gulf of Salerno (with some older vines 40+ years) and the other a higher site next to the Greek ruins at Paestum. The fruit is always of exceptional quality and fermented and aged in stainless steel. Full of exotic fruits, kiwis and apricots with an exceptional purity and tantalising aromas of raspberry flower. We have tasted back to 2002 and it is amazing how long these wines improve for, almost like a Campanian Riesling in structure, a real testament to how very good it is. Yet it is almost impossible not to drink it right now.

Luigi’s organic vines are located in the Southern heart of Campania in an area of immense natural beauty and home to the ancient Greek site of Paestum. His wines are wonderfully pure expressions of the traditional local grapes, Fiano d’Avellino and Aglianico.
