Fiano is the most noble grape from the town of Avelino in Italy's Campania region. We planted 1.1 acre of Fiano in 2012 thinking it would respond well to our Mediterranean climate here in Dry Creek Valley. We were right. This 2019 Fiano has the classic honey, beeswax, almond and pear quality the grape is known for. It was fermented and aged in concrete to retain is varietal character without oak. Dry and crisp, this wine is very European.
We recently planted anohter acre of Fiano which will begin producing in 202.
Fermented and aged in concrete tanks. No malo-lactic fermentation to retain acidity.
