Bright acid, fantastic minerality and touch of unripened strawberry

Delicious Fiano. Robust, golden, lengthy. Missing some of the special character that might make me rate it higher.

Tight at first. Resembles other fianos until it gets some air. Meaning some light tangerine and pear notes, rocks in a stream, with good spice and acidity. Then it gets caramel apples, spice, chestnut, walnut, oyster/mushroom, with lots of electric minerals tingling over the whole mouth. There’s something great about good fianos and grecos, maybe it’s volcanic, but the spice and electric mineral component takes on a piquancy like blue cheese. I love it, and this is probably my favorite young. I wish I had space to put some aside. Not super long but full of flavor.

Killer juice. Some smoky reduction upon opening, and a lightly ginger-spiced pear nose, fresh-cut lemons, minerality like crazy, the electric kind. On the palate there's green pineapple, whole meyer lemon flavors, good rocks bitterness, high, purposeful, acidity. I would drink bottles of this stuff. Avellino all day.
