We harvested our ’18 Fiano on September 18th, but in years past we may have picked it a week earlier. Once Fiano gets in the ripe zone sugars can really accelerate. So we have opted to err on the early side of ripeness in 2016 and 2017. The cool 2018 August and early September gave us some room to get cute, and let the Fiano hang on the vine an extra week without risking excessive sugar levels.
The result is our most complete version of this Campania white. Intense fruit, honey and almonds highlight this textured white. The body of this Fiano makes it one of my favorite food wines.
