Winemaker Notes

A very fine and elegant wine with a great bouquet rich in notes of acacia and hawthorn. Great finesse makes this wine seem like a Sauvignon from Trentino. These special characteristics are due to the location of the vineyards, which are 550m above sea level.

Wine & Spirits
This is sourced from vines at up to 1,800 feet in elevation on the Stio plateau in southern Campania’s Cilento region. The fruit is given a six-hour cold maceration before fermenting and aging in stainless steel. Scents of white blossoms and jasmine lead into rich flavors of golden apple, while beautifully woven acidity balances the wine’s substantial density. Taste this over several hours to allow the flavors to unfold in the glass.

James Suckling
Preserved lemons, white roses and peonies make for a floral character. Fleshy and round but bright and citrusy. Tightly wound and medium on the finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Fiano Pian di Stio is a beautiful wine, bright and easy-drinking. It's got plenty of that natural rubber or latex aroma that I love, along with softer contours of peach, pear and fragrant passion fruit. Some 18,000 bottles were made. Fruit comes from high vineyards where the growing conditions are a bit cooler at 550 to 650 meters above sea level.

A winemaking renaissance is underfoot in Campania as more and more small, artisan and family-run wineries redefine their style with vineyard improvements and cellar upgrades. The region boasts a cool Mediterranean climate with extreme coastal, as well as high elevation mountain terroirs. It is cooler than one might expect in Campania; the region usually sees some of the last harvest dates in Italy.

Just south of Mount Vesuvio, the volcanic and sandy soils create aromatic and fresh reds based on Piedirosso and whites, made from Coda di Volpe and Falanghina. Both reds and whites go by the name, Lacryma Christi, meaning the "tears of Christ." South of Mount Vesuvio, along the Amalfi Coast, the white varieties of Falanghina and Biancolella make fresh, flirty, mineral-driven whites, and the red Piedirosso and Sciasinoso vines, which cling to steeply terraced coastlines, make snappy and ripe red wines.

Farther inland, as hills become mountains, the limestone soil of Irpinia supports the whites Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina and Greco di Tufo as well as the most-respected red of the south, Aglianico. Here the best and most age-worthy examples come from Taurasi.

Farther north and inland near the city of Benevento, the Taburno region also produces Aglianico of note—called Aglianico del Taburno—on alluvial soils. While not boasting the same heft as Taurasi, these are also reliable components of any cellar.

Fiano is an aromatic, white variety fully suited to the Apennine Mountains of Campania and has been documented in the region since the 13th century. It is at its best in the hills of Avellino where volcanic soils give it a charismatic aromatic lift and support a range of styles from taut and steely to nutty and smooth. Somm Secret—If you like Chardonnay, Viognier or Pinot Blanc, Fiano would be a great new wine to try!
