Rocca del Principe
Campanian husband & wife winemaking duo Aurelia Fabrizio and Ercole Zarrella have instantly commanded the attention of critics and consumers alike, through the sheer breadth of aromatics, minerals and compelling nuances displayed in their substantial Fiano di Avellino. In 2011, they introduced their second wine, a Taurasi. Ercole is a fourth generation farmer. He grew up cleaning barrels. The family used to sell their red wine in demijohns on to the local market. In 1990, Ercole and Aurelia planted 4 ha of Fiano in Lapio and for 10 years sold the grapes to a large Campania producer. In 2004, they began making their own Estate-bottles wine and Rocca del Principe was born.
