From the winery: Clean and stony, our Fiano lends itself to a simple stainless-steel fermentation and maturation in the cellar. The 2018 was sourced from two neighboring vineyards in northwest Paso Robles that produce intensely flavorful fruit with plentry of lively acidity. Destemmed and crushed in the early a.m., the grapes are left to soak on its skins for a few hours before a delicate basket pressing. It then proceeds untouched through alcoholic and partial malolactic fermentation, then filtered and bottled in mid February. Tasting notes Along with its red Campanian cousin Aglianico, Fiano is entirely suited to the southern Italian-like warm and dry climate of Paso Robles. Intense aromas of honey, almond and red licorice weave through fruit notes of melon, and orange peel. The structured palate balances firm acidity with flavors of honey and asian pear, finishing with saline minerality.
