vigne verginianae

Vines have flourished r over two thousand years on the hills of the River Sabato Valley, one of the areas of Italy where some of the most extraordinary wines in the world are made. The natural and millenary isolation of the people has helped preserve ancient native vines, which have come down to us not the least thanks to the enlightened work of the Benedictine monks of the Monastery of Montevergine (XII century) whose ingenuity combined aromas, nuances and contrasts, while also perfecting vineyard and winemaking techniques in Medieval times. One of the most prestigious whites in Italy, Fiano di Avellino Vigne Verginianae is a fragrant, elegant, full-bodied, savory, fresh and well-structured wine. It achieves great expressive finesse, is perfect when enjoyed young but is also ideal for admirers of white wines that improve with age.

press review

Taken from the “Virgin Diplomatic Code” edited by Placido Mario Tropeano (Montevergine, Benedictine Fathers, 1979):

1137 - November, ind. I, Montefusco

Proserpina, Umberto’s daughter, Lord of Atripalda, on receiving the news of her husband’s death, falling in the war between King Ruggiero and Count Rainulfo, near Siponto, asked Alberto, rector and custodian of the church of Santa Maria in Montevergine, to send some faithful persons to the land of Apulia to collect the mortal remains of her husband and ensure him an honorable burial in the sanctuary; at the same time, she offered the Abbey a vineyard outside Montefusco Castle, in a locality named Sant’Angelo, near Marcopio.
