Joaquin, 'Vino della Stella' Fiano di Avellino 2016
Fiano di Avellino
Fiano di Avellino 100%
Just like the rest of the Joaquin wines, this Fiano is unlike any other you've tasted. Alongside the concentrated apricot fruit on the nose, this is a distinctly herbal wine with notes of marjoram, bay leaves, almonds and saffron. The palate shows an appetising savouriness and minerality.
The grapes are grown at 700 metres above sea level in the Montefalcione area. The wine spends 2 days in contact with the skins, giving a dense and textured style. Ageing takes place for 60 days in stainless steel.
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).
