An ancient white grape variety native to southern Italy and thought to originate from the town of Avellino. Not surprising then that the best expression of this variety comes from the Fiano di Avellino DOCG which encompasses the vineyards surrounding the town. Fiano has strong flavours and is full-bodied with a waxy texture, yet is not overtly aromatic. The best wines have floral and honey flavours with a spicy edge.
The variety is starting to gain critical acclaim and very good producers on the island of Sicily, and as far as Australia are making some fantastic wines.
