2013 Sarno 1860 - Fiano di Avellino (87 pts) #winereview @tenutasarno1860 路 鈩癸笍 Reading up on this winery, I am impressed with the laserlike focus on this grape. They make 2 Fiano di Avellino wines. One is a zero dosage spumante and the other is this wine. A single grape and all from a single vineyard. Organically farmed. High density planting in nutrient rich calcareous clay and limestone soil at 625 m above sea level. Fermentation in stainless steel and 6 months lees aging路 馃憗 Deep gold color路 馃憙 Medium intensity on the nose. Dried apricot, baked quince, nectarine, orange blossom, almonds, and copper penny路 馃憚 The wine is dry, medium+ lively acidity, medium alcohol, and medium+ body. There is a rich mouth coating texture to the wine. Flavors of dried apricot, dried mango, necatarine, orange zest, and copper penny. There is a medium+ length finish, but it ends with a strong bitter almond note路 馃敂 The wine has possibly had some extended skin contact and a few extra years on it giving it a deep color. The juxtaposition of the ripe orchard fruit against the bitter almond finish takes away a few points for me, I would like to revisit a more current release. Aromatically interesting, palate has complexity, but just doesn't quite break out due to the finish路 #fiano #fianodiavellino #campania #italianwine #whitewine
