Masseria Altemura Fiano 2012

Masseria Altemura Fiano 750ML 2012    
Sku: 50842

Few people know that the Fiano variety was known to Frederick II of Swabia and to Charles I of Anjou as long ago as the 13th century, and that it was cultivated right here in the Salento area. The Zonin family has retrieved it from oblivion, finding in the soils of Masseria Altemura an ideal microclimate for proving that one can obtain an outstanding white even in Puglia. The recuperation of clones of this variety was not a simple task, but the result is a gratifying glimpse of winemaking history enclosed in a bottle. The balance of taste sensations, with hints of almonds, orange blossom, peaches and aromatic herbs, conveys the atmosphere of a unique habitat set like a jewel between the two Seas. One can taste the Ionian and the Adriatic in the refi ned salty and mineral notes and the crisp, elegant freshness on the palate. Thanks to the wine’s brilliant highlights, one might defi ne it as “the gold of Salento”.

Tasting notes
Colour Deep straw yellow Bouquet The wine’s perfumes are restrained and are based on distinctly fruity notes. Flavour Fiano’s personality is characterized by appealing freshness combined with a rich, mellow texture. It displays attractive sensations of peaches and apricots as well as of delicately scented flowers.

Food pairing
It goes particularly well with full-flavored fish dishes or with legume-based dishes (such as broad beans and endive).
