La Fortezza, Fiano Sannio, DOC, 2021

It comes from a pure vinification of Fiano grapes from the company's vineyards in Torrecuso, in the province of Benevento. We are in the heart of the Sannio region of Campania, where the vine has been cultivated practically since time immemorial. The grapes, which have reached perfect ripeness, are harvested by hand at the end of September. Processing begins immediately after their arrival in the cellar and involves the use of steel containers only, with strict temperature control. The result is a wine characterised by a beautiful straw-yellow colour, with clear scents of white-fleshed fruit and toasted hazelnuts. In the mouth, then, one discovers a white wine characterised by a pleasant freshness, due above all to the natural acidity of the wine, but also good body. Excellent as an aperitif, this Fiano reaches its peak when paired with fish or shellfish dishes. It has sufficient body and character, however, to accompany satisfactorily also meat dishes, especially white meat, or well creamed risotto.
