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.

  • Mastroberardino Fiano Fiano di Avellino Radici 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice, white Italian wine from Compangia. White pear, leche in the nose. Pale yellow color might indicate low intensity, but is not. Good acid with tart, citrus, honey flavors. Read More

  • Mandrarossa Fiano 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I had this wine at a tasting and loved it. I'm a die hard chard fan, but this had just enough depth with a exotic finish that I was sold! I'm so glad to find it here, as I can't seem to locate it for sale in my home town of Charleston, SC Read More

  • Scribner Bend "Novantina" 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This wine received a Gold Medal from the L.A. International Wine competition. This wine was released last April and was sold out by the end of 2008. An excellent wine at an excellent price. The 2008 'Novantina' has just been bottled and will be released on April 25th at our Release Party. A wine that you must try. Read More

  • Pasqua Lapaccioi Fiano Salento 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I enjoyed it a lot, a bit more texture and body and flavor than most Fiano's that I have tasted over the years. Matched it with Shrimp fra Diablo and it was the perfect accompaniment. Very well priced. Read More

  • M&s Label Cantina del Coppiero Bianco Beneventano 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Neutral, just like the wine itself. I must admit it up front, I love Campanian white wines, so I was a bit disappointed with this M&S Beneventano IGT; as an aside, I suppose this may have come to the attention of the very attentive buying team at M&S, as the wine no longer seems to be carried. I had a decent couple of cooking sessions where I ... Read More
