2013 Fiano di Avellino Cuvée 906

Wine colour
Italy > Campania
Ciro Picariello
Tasting Notes:

This cuvée comes from the oldest and highest vineyard of Ciro Picariello, from almost 700 metres altitude. The `906` represents the number of the plot registered with local land registry. Cool nights, fresh winds, low yields and a late harvest mean this juice is intense, vibrant, mineral and packed with personality. Aged in steel rather than oak, it’s freshness and energy get the tastebuds working. Tiny volumes of this cuvée are made. Drink from 2016

Press Reviews:

`The Picariello family certainly sees fiano as an important grape: They pick it late, ferment it slowly with native yeasts and leave it in steel tanks on the lees for a full year. The intent—and result—is a fiano meant to age and evolve, and the fact we’re drinking the 2013 reflects that. It’s creamy with lime curd and green figs, plus matcha tea and a distinctive smoky edge, all making for an impressive mouthful of wine. More than that: It’s a reminder that white wine is now being taken seriously not just in Burgundy or Friuli, but nearly everywhere.` Jon Bonné, Punchdrink.com, 20 Dec 2017
