The 2020 Fiano di Avellino mixes both savory and sweet, with dusty yellow flowers, raw almonds and gingery spice giving way to crushed apples and pears. It envelopes the palate with rich silky textures, as a mix of brisk acids and sour green citrus creates a more tactile feel. A twang of tart green apple and a coating of salty minerals linger long through the lightly structured finale.

The Collio di Lapio Fiano di Avellino has an elegant nose willed with white peach, almonds and fresh spring flowers. The mineral body coming from the calcareous-clayey soils perfectly offsets the rich, round mouth-feel, creating a sensory experience and calling for some fresh seafood or hard cheeses.
