The hills of Fiego, from which the name Fiego bianco originates, are a micro-area of the Donnici sub-area of the DOP Terre di Cosenza, where native vines have always been cultivated. The particular exposure and the unique microclimate determine a characterization in pedoclimatic and ampelographic terms; the plants are the historical ones, cultivated as sapling, with very low average yields and manual harvesting. These elements characterize this label as a pure expression of the territory.
