Fiano di Avellino

Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita /// Bianco
Fiano di Avellino

The wine appears a pale straw, then releases long-lasting, emphatic notes of fruit and flowers, including summer flowers, pear, and hazelnut, that evolve into hints of tropical fruit and honey. The palate, decidedly classic to the variety, is well balanced and lengthy, completing a wine that is elegant, refined, and cellar-worthy.
