Villa Raiano

Taurasi DOCG

Campania :: Italy

Estate::

Villa Raiano was established in 1996 by Sabino and Simone Basso and their brother-in-law, Paolo Sibillo. The name Villa Raiano is derived from the name of a small ‘borgo’ (borough) of Serino, the town in which the winery is presently located. The ‘borgo’ was originally built inside the wonderfully scenic and local ‘rocky mountain.’ The property’s 17 hectares are planted around the beautiful hills of the “Irpinia” area in Avellino, a province that is not too far from Naples. The production is based on the classic wines from the region, particularly Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and the powerful Taurasi made entirely from Aglianico grapes.
