      Radici Fiano di Avellino DOCG 2019

      Mastroberardino makes a special effort with the old grape variety Fiano. It was already cultivated by the Romans, who called it Vitis apiana because of its special attraction to bees (apis). It gives rise to a wine - straw yellow and wonderfully aromatic with a spicy honey and nut bouquet. The characteristic taste is very harmonious. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Exotic-fruit, pear and white-spring-flower aromas mingle together with a delicate whiff of smoke. The savory, vibrant palate features white stone fruit, lemon drop and a hint of honeyed almond alongside tangy acidity. A saline note adds depth." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2019 Fiano di Avellino Radici is remarkably fresh and vibrant, showing ripe pear with hints of mango. A whiff of smoky florals evolve as the Radici sweeps across the senses with grace, displaying flavors of ripe orchard fruits, then savory hints of sage and minerals. The finish is long and fresh, neatly framed by a twang of residual acids with a saline quality, which begs for another sip." Vinous

      “Core” Bianco Campania IGT 2017

      Beautiful cuvée of Greco and Fiano. In the bouquet an opulent potpourri of passion fruit, peach and honeydew melon. On the palate not too heavy, but rather dancing and elegant with a wonderfully fresh structure. Complex and full-bodied finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This blend of equal parts Fiano and Greco shows a really tight core with lots of orchard fruit, honey, almond, pear and peach cobbler. Although the 2017 Core Bianco is a simple wine, it offers a complete deal with everything you should look for in an easy-drinking Campania white. There are some pretty notes of crushed mineral as well. Fruit comes from a vineyard with limestone soil located some 400 meters above sea level." Robert Parker

    Things to know about
    Fiano
     

    Fiano is one of the oldest autochthonous white grape varieties in Italy. It is mainly found in the southern Italian region of Campania. Probably cultivated by the Romans, it was widespread and very popular from the Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century. After the phylloxera disaster, international varieties such as Chardonnay or the easily cultivated Trebbiano varieties were preferred in many areas. Autochthonous grape varieties largely died out. So did the Fiano.

    In the 1970s a return to the past began and it is thanks to Antonio Mastroberardino that the variety was saved. The Mastroberardino winery invested a lot in research. In cooperation with universities and grape nurseries, other old grape varieties such as Greco di Tufo, Falanghina, Piedirosso, Aglianico or Coda di Volpe have been successfully recultivated over the years. In 1990, there were no more than 500 hectares of Fiano in the whole of Italy, now there are more than three times as many, with a strong upward trend, very pleasing.

    The relatively late ripening Fiano grape produces aromatic, spicy white wines with a peach and grape aroma reminiscent of Muscat, often with a delicate honey and nut bouquet. When properly matured, they have a long shelf life. If you happen to have read in Wikipedia that Fiano should be drunk young, please forget that. Mastroberardinos Fianos are still in the barrel for the drinking window indicated there. On the contrary, Fiano from the good growing regions Cilento, Sannio or Avellino only tastes really good after two or three years of bottle ripening in the cellar and remains a fine pleasure and a wonderful universal food companion for a few more years.

    Wine journalist Steffen Maus describes Fiano this way: "Aromas of lime blossom, dried fruit, hazelnut, almond and wild fennel are just some of the complex aromas, always accompanied by a wonderful minerality and juiciness on the palate, which invites you to continue drinking. Wonderfully independent and not to be compared with other Italian or French grape varieties."

    The most famous growing areas are the DOC Sannio, DOC Cilento and the region around Avellino, which has been upgraded to DOCG since 2003. The Fiano di Avellino is probably the best known. Its vineyards, situated in the heart of Irpinia, reach up to 700 m above sea level, are always well ventilated and particularly fine fruity due to clear temperature differences between day and night.

    After new plantations in the last century, Fiano can also be found outside Campania on a small scale in Basilicata, Marche and Sicily, where Planeta has proven what impressive wines can be produced from Fiano. About a handful of producers in Australia are also involved with this variety.  SUPERIORE.DE
