Intense aromas of orange marmalade, savoury fig jam and cold pressed honey are all vying for the lead on your nose though marmalade is the strongest contenders.
The palate is medium bodied and again those marmalade flavours play a strong role. As well as creamy fresh figs to round out the fruit profile.
There is just a dash of acidity on the finish that scoops up any residual sugar and leaves the palate dry and fresh.
Enjoy this wine with some beautiful hard cheeses, a rich and savoury pâté or an orange based dessert. Just make sure your wine is the sweetest thing on the table!
Fiano originates in Campania and is also widely grown in Sicily.
The wine is beautifully aromatic and packed with red summer fruits of strawberries and raspberries. There is a floral rose water character on the nose that reminds us of indulgent Turkish Delight and finishes with a sherbety hint waving farewell.
The palate takes us to the south of France where dry, crisp Rosé’s are the order of the day. The wine has a fantastic balance, and those summer fruits dominate the medium bodied palate. There is a light dusting of phenolics that give texture to the wine and a kiss of acidity on the finish cleans up the palate and leaves you salivating for more.
Pair with a shared board of cheese, antipasto, cured meats and savoury nuts.
