Crisp, citrusy Pinot Grigio may be the star grape in northern Italy, but down south in Campania, the region’s local whites take center stage. According to top critic Ian D’Agata, Fiano is “Italy’s single best native white grape variety,” – and this elegant exclusive will show you why.
It hails from the Urciuolo brothers’ small estate, Vesuvium (named for Mt. Vesuvius, the region’s iconic landmark). The brothers make the most of the land’s unique, mineral-rich volcanic soils. Their hillside vineyards enjoy close proximity to the sea (with its moderating breezes), producing whites of real complexity, freshness and depth – especially in an exceptional vintage like 2015. And ever since Italy’s famed Farnese Vini invested in the estate, quality has risen to new heights.
Look forward to ripe orchard and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. The palate is well-balanced, with a long, fresh finish that’s kissed with subtle spice and mineral notes. This stunning white makes a stylish aperitif or a delicious match for seafood or creamy cheeses.
To ensure quality, the brothers make their Fiano in very tiny batches. Order today to secure your share.
