Parentage of the grape: Unknown

History of the grape: Fiano hails from Campania, where much of Italy’s viticultural heritage remains preserved. The Romans used this grape to make a wine called Apianum high in the forested hills around the town of Avellino. Though Fiano is grown throughout the area, all the way down to the coast, these hills are still where the best Fiano comes from. Indeed, people say that those woods are the source of Fiano’s distinctive wild, piney, herbaceous flavor. In 1980, the area was hit by an earthquake, which destroyed its quaint, medieval wine towns. They still make wine from this ancient variety, however. Some producers have attempted to age Fiano in new oak, but most agree that it is too delicate for this treatment.

  • I'm fairly new to wine tasting, but I've noticed something: Most Zinfandels I have tried really just haven't rubbed me the right way. I'm always excited when the opp presents itself to me to try them, because I tell myself, "Surely, I just haven't had the right one!" Is this the right frame of mine? Have I not just had the right Zin? Or are Zins... Read More

  • Feudi di San Gregorio White Blend Campania IGT Privilegio 2000

    Snoothrank:

    14 carat gold color, big bouquet with apple, pear, and hazelnut notes, hints of honey; bouquet suggestive of a fruity liqueur or mild cognac. Mild attack, modestly dry with healthy tannins, and volcanic minerals with hints of raisin. Very complex from nose to finish. An excellent wine with pita and humus. Enchanting. 92 out of 100.
