Monte Faliesi Fiano di Avellino 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvested by hand in October, the must underwent carbonic maceration for 48 hours in stainless steel tanks at an extremely low temperature prior to alcoholic fermentation. 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.

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

Light and crisp palate with a perfect finish. Lemon undertones and a hint of honeycomb make for a perfect summer sipping wine



Tasting Notes:

Appealing aromas fill the nose, while flavors of ripe pears, honey and toasted hazelnuts envelope the palate.
