1 of 7: Fiano – #7wines7days
The White Fiano, although it is a grape from Campania region, it is present in the Terre del Gargano, Apulia, since the twelfth century, thanks to Frederick II of Swabia: he felt that here this grape could express itself very well given the geographical proximity and the similarity with the territory of origin. He was right, as the gold medal we got during the Bellavita London last year demonstrates. It is one of the few white grape varieties to create wines for aging thanks to its impressive structure. When drunk young it has a light yellow color, elegant scents of green apple, lime, fennel, hawthorn, a fresh and enveloping palate, making it suitable for fish dishes. If it is drunk with one or more years of aging, it expresses its famous notes of hazelnut, almond and honey, becoming suitable to be paired with cheeses, even seasoned ones. We harvest it in mid-September from our 20 years old organic Fiano vineyard, we cool the selected, de-stemmed and cleaned grapes and let them be in contact with its skins for a few hours; It follows the temperature-controlled fermentation and aging of two months on its lees.
