The 2009 Diano Di Avellino From A Casa hits everything that a Fiano should be, without seeming predictable. Particularly clear and clean this wine is lies slightly on the lighter side for typical Fiano Enjoyable to drink, it has interesting mint flavouring on the end, giving it a mojito of Italian whites groove. It is important to note that the Campania area of Italy features volcanic soils, but this wine does not show much of that minerality or nuttiness that might sometimes show up in wines from this geology.
Musical Match: For this young and fun wine I am matching it with Los Campesinos’! Death to Los Campesinos! Despite sounding like Campania, this crisp and clean rockers are from Wales. Fiano is not meant to that complex a wine, it is made to be enjoyed young, and preferably with a large group of friends.
Leave a comment and me know what wine you would match with this music.
