There’s a sweet, almondy richness that grabs your attention as the 2019 Fiano di Avellino opens in the glass. Honeyed florals and ripe apples join the fray with coaxing. This is silky in texture and soothing with its unexpectedly opulent notes of ripe apples and pears. That said, the 2018 never steps out of line, as a firm spine of acidity keeps the experience motivated with an impression of refinement. It tapers off fresh to hints of ginger and melon. In 2019, the Fiano of Ciro Picariello punches well above its weight class. (Eric Guido, Vinous, January 2022)

Lovely bouquet of lemon zest and orange blossom with hints of cedar, creek pebbles, and white pepper. On the palate lemon candy, white peach, and grapefruit pith with fresh ginger and white pepper spice lingering on a medium length finish. Zippy, fun, approachable white wine with a bit of zing. Great value from southern Italy. Went perfect with my pineapple jackfruit Buddha bowl with teriyaki sauce.

Seriously good. Tart. Transports you to the Amalfi Coast! Excellent with grilled Branzino.

Hitting the right notes. Body but great acid in back.
