Richly textured wine does not have to be fat and oaky. It also doesn’t have to be messed up with oxidized and bitter flavors from skin contact. It can just be compelling, fresh and full-bodied, which is exactly how I would describe our 2022 Fiano.
Fiano is consistently heralded as one of Italy’s best wines, as evidenced by the fact that it is one of the few white wines given a DOCG classification. Fiano has very distinct pear, honey and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Its thick skins add a dimension of weight, but the acidity keeps it fresh and lively. This is especially true in Dry Creek Valley, where we experience cooler evening temperatures than they do in Campania.
Jason and our vineyard crew have really homed in on when to harvest Fiano- ripe enough to show classic Fiano characteristics, but while the acidity is still solid. Jason’s wine making approach is like all of our whites, fermented and aged in stainless steel or concrete, and no malolactic fermentation.
The 2022 vintage is exactly how we draw it up for Fiano. Unfortunately, we still have very little planted, so it will go quickly.
