Fiano, Tesco

blog 121

Fiano is particularly associated with Sicily. I’ve been there twice and loved it. The wines available on the island ranged up to over 500Euros, but we never see these here (except perhaps in a couple of stores in St James, London). Cantine Settesoli produce this wine for Tesco; they are a large but good producer. I can honestly say that I’ve never had a bad bottle of wine from them – or from Sicily. Fiano dates back to Roman times and is only really produced in Campania (the area around Naples) and in small parcels in the McLaren Vale (South Australia) and near Mendoza in Argentina.

Tasting notes: Dry, unoaked. Aromatic with notes of apple and citrus, tropical hint.
