Fiano

The grape variety Fiano originates from the province of Avellino in the Campania region east of Naples. The variety takes its name from the Latin 'vitis apiana', as the grapes were so sweet they proved to be irresistible to bees ('api').

Fiano was selected by Mark Lloyd when looking for a new southern Italian variety to grow in McLaren Vale. The first Australian Fiano was released by Coriole from the 2005 vintage.

2016- 95 Points- Tip-top fiano with its heady aromas of mandarin, lemon rind and honeysuckle then it teases out a raft of flavours onto a palate full of texture such as Mediterranean herbs, creamed honey, flinty with chalk-like acidity the final touch. Boom. - James Halliday
