The historic vigneron Sabino “Sammy Bruno” Loffredo has quickly gained a reputation within and beyond Italy for some of the best Greco and Fiano wines. In fact, his Greco is often considered  by many to be the single best example of the variety. Loffredo has definitely lived up to his award of “Up and coming winery of the year 2006” in Gambero Rosso.

Founded in 1993, the 3 hectares of vineyards were chosen with the express purpose of showcasing Montefredane to the wine world. Located in the province of Avellino on elevated, mountainous terrain, they produce limited quantities of Fiano, Greco, Falanghina, and Aglianico. The wines follow a similar ideology to Loffredo as original and faithful to the land. They show elegance, depth, and mineral character - though Loffredo himself is more of an extrovert! The wines are ready for release after bottling but have excellent age-ability, becoming more beautiful as they gain complexity in the bottle.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(Fiano 2019) "Pale in colour and fresh in aroma with subtle pear and spice notes, this delivers a light leesy prickle on the tongue followed by a textural quality that's at once rich and yet fresh, complemented by a satisfying stone fruit purity, finishing on a dry saline note. Well stored, this still-young wine will develop further complexity over the next five years and more, as will fresher recent vintages, too." 92 points Anthony Rose, Decanter (December 2023)

(Taurasi 2017) "Powerful and intense in aroma with a fine veneer of spicy oak, this accomplished Aglianic shows pure and concentrated dark cherry fruit quality with real clarity of flavour and a rich middle. Its remarkably smooth texture is buoyed by subtle tannins and juicy balancing acidity for a fine, savory finish." 93 points Anthony Rose, Decanter (December 2023)
