About

92

"Bright, light yellow. White peach, green apple, quinine and a whiff of iodiney minerality on the nose. Round and generous on the palate, but with lively acidity lifting the flavors of peach, minty herbs and grilled nuts. There’s an underlying element of richness to this perfumed, mineral-driven Fiano. The firm spine of acidity extends the stone fruit and mint flavors on the long back end and guarantees plenty of further development in bottle."

Product Description:

"Guido Marsella founded his winery in 1995 with a nostalgia for Fiano's glory days and a drive to produce the a great expression. (We're a little bias but we think he's already there.) His Fiano shows the real potential of the grape when grown and vinified carefully in a high altitude and mountainous zone. From his 6.5 organically farmed hectares of Fiano at 650 meters, Guido produces only 500 to 800 cases of Fiano per vintage. The vineyards are located in the town of Summonte, in the Provence of Avellino, across 25 total hectares of land at over 2640 feet above sea level. The soils are primarily rocky with a limy-clay subsoil. All the Fiano comes from one 7ha vineyard in Summonte, the highest altitude in Avellino. This is the same town as Ciro Picariello. The wine is fermented and aged in tank with some fine lees contact. He bottles after 12 months and lets it rest in bottle for another year." -Importer
