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.

94 Points. This has it all going on. A different kind of dry white with texture, flavour and a very satisfying finish. Fennel, pine nuts, lime and sweet lemon, dusting of powdery chalky texture, clean acidity and superb drinkability. Limey flinty crunch to close. Chin chin - The Wine Front
