From the ‘Janare’ line, a selection of wines intended to reflect autochthonous grape varieties, including Falanghina, Greco, Fiano and Aglianico. The Janare group of wines is La Guardiense’s first attempt at officialising a local denomination. The names of the 7 crus making up the Janare range were purposely selected from local lore thought to be evocative of the particular characteristics of each grape variety.
