2010 Fiano, Bianco Basilicata, Carbone

Fiano, Bianco Basilicata, Carbone
Berrys’ range of Italian wines has never looked so smart. While the traditional strength is still in the north & centre, we’re now exploring the deep south. Fiano is one of the notable white varieties, famous in Campania (Fiano di Avellino) but pretty here in Basilicata only 40 minutes away.

There are a few outcrops of calcareous clay soils near the Carbone’s village of Melfi that better suit a white variety such as Fiano than Aglianico. One is struck by the honeysuckle aromas of this deliciously pure wine; the palate crunchy with refreshing pebbly sapidity, ripeness and great agility.

Fiano, Bianco Basilicata, Carbone
Carbone Fiano 2010 has lovely ripe fruit with toastiness and a mealy quality. Charming - has the Italian slink.
