    I've always liked Fiano d'Avellino but never had my breath taken away like I have with this wine. The nose is classic all beeswax and lanolin until the dried flowers and spice kick in. Then on the palate you see the real impressive portion of the wine, the 2015 vintage is sensational and for Sarno the added dimension on palate is incredible, the richness is skewered by a mix of tannin and mineral driven acidity giving it weight with a real lift on the back end. The flavors are a mix of Kaffir lime and ripe Bosc pear that enliven the richness of the wine and seem to create flow. The finish is improperly named, it never seems to finish, just on and on and on, more lime more pear and then that ground mineral zip. I would love to have this with a bigger, more structured fish like Swordfish although I'm sure many of you'd head towards Lobster. I really think this wine is stunning; you definitely need to try this!

    Fiano is one of the noble white grapes of Southern Italy and Sarno is without doubt one the finest producers of it. Theirs combines richness and structure and the 2015 vintage takes the aromatics and palate to another level. Subtle scents of beeswax, pear and citrus precede a round and seamless palate with a core of vibrant acidity and a chalky mineral finish. This sensational white will age gracefully and will develop more complex notes of honey and hazelnuts as it matures.

    Sarno is one of the greatest for Fiano and I had high hopes for this. Truly text book here with tones of white flowers, ripe peaches and acacia honey. The honey becomes freshly harvest beeswax on the palate with tons of texture and a long finish. Fiano is great when there's acid and this one integrates it perfectly. Another stupendously drinkable wine from Sarno and easy to integrate into almost any meal.
