Fiano is an ancient grape from southern Italy and has been cultivated since at least Roman times. As with many low yielding grapes, Fiano fell out of favour after the phylloxera crisis but was rescued from near extinction by the Mastroberardino family, who recognised the high quality of this indigenous variety. Fiano is typically used to make varietal wines with characteristic aromas of wildflowers, honey, and spice and flavours of apricot, peach, lemon, fresh herbs, nuts, along with mineral notes on a long finish. Expect big, complex, elegant, and refined wines from Fiano.
