Fiano Campania IGT “Joaquin 2013 Piante a Lapio”, by Joaquin Sarl

Piante a Lapio of Joaquin Winery is obtained from Fiano grapes, typical of the Avellino countryside area, in the heart of Irpinia. Recognised as one of the most interesting and fascinating Fiano in the Campania region, it is the result of a careful selection of the oldest vineyards in the area, carried out by the owner Raffaele Pagano.The prefillossera vines, almost centenary, offer bunches capable of concentrating the precious nectar of the grapes giving life to a wine with marked organoleptic qualities and extreme elegance.
The vinification takes place in second passage chestnut barrels, made with Agerola wood, limiting oxidation and woody notes, in favor of the wine’s distinctive fruity and floral hints, at the same time enriched by a complex olfactory set.
With an intense golden yellow brilliant color, stand out on the nose with hints of broom and yellow rose and then slowly opens up to notes of white pepper, honey and vanilla and a delicate hazelnut aftertaste.
Quite soft on the palate, it is well balanced by a pleasant freshness and characterised by a long finish that makes it an excellent combination even with more structured dishes such as monkfish in anchovy sauce, but obviously also goes very well with fish dishes and white meats, as well as aged and blue cheeses.
