Campanaro Fiano Di Avellino 2004

Campanaro makes a white wine made from Fiano, a richly flavored white grape varietal which is used to make Fiano Di Avellino in the Campania region of Southern Italy. The vines grow on the volcanic hillsides of Avellino, an area east of Naples. The wines produced are usually lightweight, of moderate to high acidity, and with aromas of ripe pears, honey and toasted hazelnuts.

T-notes > A slightly burnt ash character amalgamated with the aromas of guava fruit, rock melon, pear and limestone. Tastes very polished and light on its feet as a result of its nuanced acid backbone. Great food wine that pairs well with a nice salad or something more substantive in the fat department like salami, sausage, or triple creme cheese. Very yummy juice. Liked it a lot. Also dig the beautifully designed wine label, which is a study in quiet elegance.

Available @ Auric Pacific Fine Wines.
