Story: Fiano is a white Italian variety grown primarily in the Campania region in the south, and also on the island of Sicily. Known for its low yields, strong flavours and intense aromas, this is a variety to watch in the years to come.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose offers subtle, attractive aromas of peaches with a twist of lime.
Palate: The palate is elegant and crisp with appealing stone fruit flavours and a refreshing, zesty finish.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with fried whitebait and a roast garlic aioli.
Cellaring: Drink now
