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 2021) "As good as Pietracupa’s Greco di Tufo wine is (arguably Italy’s best), the wine made by Pietracupa owner Sabino Loffredo that never ceases to amaze me is his marvelous Fiano. Pale straw yellow. Vibrant minerality, juicy orchard fruitiness, herbal underbrush, and smoky hazelnutty nuances dominate on the nose and in the mouth. Pure, dense and concentrated, with gorgeous clarity and cut provided by crystalline acidity, the finish lasts and lasts featuring hints of jasmine, peach, grapefruit and repeating minerality. Knockout stuff." 96 points, Ian D'Agata, Terroir Sense (April 2024)
