The vineyards are situated at 550 m.a.s.l. A maceration of 6 hours at 4°C is carried out. Due to this cold fermentation, more aromas are transferred to the must. After soft pressing, the Fiano is aged on the fine lees for 6 months.
The San Salvatore winery, founded by Giuseppe Pagano in 1988, specializes in old autochthonous grape varieties such as Fiano, Falanghina and Aglianico. The 16 hectare estate is located in the Cilento National Park, where the multi entrepreneur also runs a 5-star hotel and a buffalo farm. So it is not surprising if a buffalo is sighted in the vineyards. The buffaloes also provide their own natural fertiliser for the soil. The vines are cultivated according to biological, partly bio-dynamic guidelines. Riccardo Cotarella, one of the best wine consultants in Italy, acts as a consultant oenologist. These factors and the prevailing microclimate enable San Salvatore to produce wines of the highest quality. The Fiano "Pian di Stio" has already been awarded the coveted three glasses by Gambero Rosso and with the omaggio a "Gillo Dorfles" he dedicates a wine to his friend and artist, for which he was allowed to design the labels for 16 vintages.
