Joaquin, Piante a Lapio Fiano 2012
Fiano di Avellino
Fiano di Avellino 100%
A truly unique wine produced from century-old Fiano vines on the volcanic soils in the cru of Lapio. Extremely complex bouquet with notes of gunpowder, backed up by scents of hazelnut, grapefruit and bruised apples with a light oxidised touch. The taste is tight and long, with nervy acidity and a mineral persistence.
Fermentation takes place �sous voile� (under a veil of yeast) for 60 days. The wine is then aged in 500 litre chesnut casks.
Joaquin winery, located in Montefalcione, home to the two DOCG wines, Fiano di Avellino and Aglianico Taurasi, was founded on a mission: to become the flag bearer for one of the great wines of Campania, the Fiano, starting from a meticulous study and selection of antique, pre-phylloxera vineyards in the area of Lapio and Montefalcione, known as the habitat of origin of this variety. In fact, Joaquin has worked tirelessly to reach an expression of Fiano which is the quintessence of the terroir of Lapio, with a purebred typicity which can be found in no other Fiano wine from the area.�This winemaking model has subsequently been applied to other varieties as well, creating a unique production philosophy which characterizes Joaquin. Their motto is��a new vintage, a new project,� and in fact only the wines which excel in a given vintage are produced.�Joaquin also crafts wines on the beautiful island of Capri. Here they perform what the producer likes to call �triage viticulture:� the recovery of indigenous varieties and the restoration of small, local vineyards. In fact, the project JOAQUIN DALL�ISOLA (Joaquin from the island) strives to safeguard the few vines left on the island with varietals like Greco, Falanghina, Biancolella and the local �Ciunchesa� (an antique clone of Greco).
