Harvest Note
The 2018 vintage was characterized by complex climatic conditions sometimes with almost tropical weather. A mild winter was followed by snow in early march which increased the humidity of environment. The rest of the spring was characterized by extreme heat peaks alternating with some rainfall especially in summer which created high humidity. In June the rains started to give a little respite, favoring a regular flowering and in a fairly short time. The month of August was marked by some brief afternoon thunderstorms maintaining very warm temperatures. Overall, the development of vegetation was fast, continuous and vigorous. The large temperature range has slowed down the maturation process, favoring the synthesis of primary aromas and secondary precursors and preserving very fresh acidity. This vintage shows grapes with excellent health.
Tasting Note
With its straw-yellow color, Fiano di Avellino stands out for its intense and persistent notes of flowers and fruits, such as pear and hazelnut, which evolve over time into more exotic essences and honey. In the mouth it is well balanced and it has a good acid, persistent and well-structured vein. It is an elegant wine, fine and long-lived, with a capacity of aging estimated up to 5 years.
Food Pairing
Seafood risotto, tagliatelle or truffle topped dishes.
