Rated 91 by Wine Spectator
Juicy white cherry and pomegranate fruit is accented by tangerine zest and a range of fragrant ground spice—lots of ginger, cardamom and white pepper. It's a bright and mouthwatering, light- to medium-bodied white, with a streak of underlying salinity driving the lingering finish. Drink now through 2026. 4,500 cases made, 800 cases imported.

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 is a stunning coastal wine region of Italy, home to over a hundred native grape varietals and some of the finest soils and climatic conditions for viticulture on earth. The fine Mediterranean climate crossed with the mineral rich volcanic terroirs produces grapes of exceptional quality and flavor, and as such, Campania has been an important center for wine production for over three thousand years. As one might expect from such an ancient and esteemed wine region, tradition is highly important to the wineries which operate there. Careful attention is paid in order to bring the most representative flavors and aromas out of the grapes, and traditional, time honored techniques are still employed across the region when producing their many highly regarded wines.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
