Fermentation also took place in stainless steel over the course of 22 days at 12°C, followed by aging for 3 months, plus an additional 2 months in bottle.
Editorial Reviews for Monte Faliesi Fiano di Avellino
Almond and granite greet the nose here along with light notes of heather and ginseng. In the mouth this is all business, very crisp and focused, almost strict with a fine balance of crisp bitter apple fruit interlaced with mineral, and gentle herbal tones. There’s a touch of toasted herb on the backend along with notes of almond extract and minerals that flow on to the long finish. This is lovely, really poised yet with plenty of rich fruit, a lovely expression of Fiano. 88pts
