Exultet is a sophisticated and elegant interpretation of Fiano di Avellino. It is a cru produced exclusively with the grapes of one Fiano vineyard. It is yellow and luminous with green reflections and fragrances of linden, acacia and thyme. It is well structured with flavours of exotic fruit, citrus and honey and a very soft mineral note. This particular elegance also derives from a partial fermentation in small oak barrels. It is a wine with great longevity which can also age for some decades thanks to its richness in precursors of aroma and the integrity of its freshness and taste. The name given to the wine derives from Exultet of Mirabella Eclano in which we can also find a tribute to bees. Exultet are liturgical parchments from the southern italian middle ages. A kind of multimedial ante litteram product made up by parchment papers sewed together, where the texts of benedictio cerei were written accompained by musical notations and miniatures put on the opposite side of the sheets.
