Falerio DOP – A unique journey in the rediscovery of a classic wine of the Piceno valley, Avora comes from a passion for tradition and quality of the grapes. Piceno in the Avora denotes land facing north-north / east, then exposed to the sea breeze which cools the vine. Avora is a unique wine, where tradition and innovation marry together to create an exceptional and essential white wine that serves beautifully with any chicken, fish, or salad. (Limited edition, only 6600 bottled annually).
