  1. Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Rubrato 2016
    JS94
    $15.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  Great fresh-plum and herbal character on the expressive nose leads into an aglianico that manages to be concentrated with no trace of opulence. Fresh, without being overly tart, at the long, dry and mineral finish. Drink or hold. - JamesSuckling.com

  2. Tenuta Sarno Fiano di Avellino 1860 2017
    VM93
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Golden yellow. Vibrant aromas of apple, pear and white flowers. Ripe peach and apple flavors show an oily texture. Luscious, multilayered and big but very juicy. Closes with a welcome gingery bite. This is a real success for a Fiano wine in the hot 2017 season, when the variety fared less well than other Campanian white wine grapes.

  3. Rocca del Principe Fiano di Avellino 2016
    VM93
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Vivid straw-green. Powdered rocks, green apple, chamomile and lemon verbena on the deep, complex nose. Then juicy, dense and well balanced, with precise, impressively lingering pomaceous orchard and white stone fruit flavors given outstanding clarity and cut by lively, harmonious acidity. Lovely Fiano that finishes with hints of crystallized ginger and white pepper.

  4. Fattoria La Rivolta Coda di Volpe 2017
    VM93
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Luminous pale golden-tinged yellow. Peach, apricot and minerals on the deep, complex nose. Then rich, dense and tactile, with flavors similar to the aromas on the long, ripe, stony finish. Another smashingly good Coda di Volpe wine by La Rivolta, an estate that has a real knack for this variety and a long history of making outstanding wines with it.

    Availability:Out of Stock
    92 Points! Bright straw-yellow. Menthol, ripe apple, botanical herbs and flowers on the inviting nose. Rich and dense with a multilayered quality. Finishes long, surprisingly tactile, complex and mouth-filling. Best Falanghina wine from Terredora in years, or at least that I have memory of. - Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

  6. Galardi Terra Di Lavoro Campania 2016
    JS93
    VM93
    $56.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  Very deep and dark, but also fragrant, this glides from dried blueberries, tar, brambleberry essence and cassis to cedar, tobacco and dried nutmeg. The palate is rich and concentrated with a ton of fine-grained tannins and a long, complex, dry finish. - JamesSuckling.com

  7. Terredora Fiano di Avellino Terre Dora 2017
    VM91

    Availability:In Stock
    91+ Points!  Pale straw-yellow. A hint of diesel fuel complicates apple and white flowers on the enticing nose. Then juicy and very bright, offering sharply chiseled flavors of apple, baked pear, cloves and sweet spices. Finishes long and dense, with outstanding, penetrating lemony cut.

  8. I Favati Fiano di Avellino Pietramara 2017
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    This house has been one of a small number of Fiano di Avellino sources we have worked with over the years, and probably the most consistent as far as quality goes.  This is a definitive Campanian white with plenty subtle white stone fruit and floral aromatics alongside a high-toned minerality.  The wine is fleshy and fairly unctuous, yet all is nicely defined by well-positioned, well-integrated acidity which gives a nice lift to everything. 
     
    The I Favati Fiano di Avellino Pietramara 2017 absolutely 'blows up' with lighter handed, herb based pasta or risotto dishes and whitefish and shellfish preparations.  There’s a certain density and relaxed acidity that are kind of a surprise if you are coming from other genres of Italian whites, but that is exactly the charm of wines like Fiano and Greco di Tufo which make up their own unique stylistic subset.  There are few frames of reference for these wines but this is one of the textbook examples of the breed and a consistent favorite around here.  It has been a tre-bicchiere choice of Gambero Rosso on multiple occasions (this one not yet rated) as well.
