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

Fiano varietal grapes have been cultivated in the Campania region of Italy for thousands of years, where they thrive under the warm Mediterranean sunshine and reach full ripeness on the superb terroir the region holds. Historians believe that Fiano grapes were a favorite of the ancient Romans, who adored the fact that these pale skinned fruits contained such deep, complex and fascinating flavors, often including dark honey, hazelnut and various spices – something unusual for white wine grapes, and something which made them famous and prized across the ancient Roman empire. Today, the grapes are cultivated in the New World as well as the Old, and are still prized for their unique character and strong, large flavors balanced nicely by a delicate floral aroma.

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

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
