Professional Wine Reviews for Ciro Picariello Fiano Di Avellino 2013

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
Still young, the 2013 Fiano di Avellino offers a solid array of yellow fruit aromas, peach, apricot, citrus and wild sage. A pretty mineral or saline note appears at the back. The quality of fruit is vibrant, tonic and youthful. Fresh acidity and creamy endnotes give the wine a good sense of balance and power at the back. Given Ciro's track record for making age-worthy whites, this wine should hold for ten more years.

Additional Information on Ciro Picariello Fiano Di Avellino 2013

Winery: Ciro Picariello

Varietal: Fiano

It is said that one of the most prized grapes of the ancient Roman empire was the Fiano varietal, a green skinned white wine grape renowned for producing straw colored wines of extraordinary character and flavor Indeed, the Fiano grape is one of the true classical varietals, being grown and cultivated by the Romans and the Greeks before them, and continuing to be used for white wine production to this day in Italy, as well as in certain New World countries. The wines made from Fiano grapes are much loved for the fact that they contain several unusual flavors which result in a complex and delicious wine. Honey, hazelnuts and various spices are detectable in the grapes of the Fiano varietal, finished with a delightful floral bouquet.

Region: Campania

Campania may well be Italy's oldest wine region, with a history which spans over three thousand years and has endured throughout the rising and falling of empires. Today, the region's wine industry is as strong as ever, and consistently producing excellent wines of character and distinction, thanks to the dedication the wineries of Campania have for quality over quantity, and the love they have for their traditions and time honored practices. Of course, the region is helped enormously by the ideal climatic conditions it receives on the west coast of Italy, and the fact that the soils of Campania could be amongst the finest on earth for viticulture. For thousands of years, Campania has been the beating heart of the Italian wine industry, and this is one thing which is unlikely to change any time soon.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
