Ciro Picariello’s tiny 7 hectare estate lies at the heart of Campania’s sub-region of Avellino among the volcanic soils of the Irpinian hills. The soil in this vineyard is a sandy clay of volcanic origin called tuff, or 'tufo' in Italian (but the name of the appellation refers not to the soil, but to the village of Tufo, which is not far from Avellino).
