The most recent vintage of the hugely popular Biancardi wines.Michele Biancardi has his vineyards situated on his family's property in Puglia. He is committed to producing wines which are distinctive and represent the terroir of Puglia. Situated close to the sea where the sun and breeze are ever present, the vineyard is 'organic'. No synthetic fertilisers or pesticides are used in the vineyard. Technology is reduced to a minimum and energy provided by solar panels supplies all the vineyard's requirements.
"Quite delicious plump peachy fruits with a touch of honey and spice. I had mine with some grilled sea bass, but most plain fish dishes would do nicely. Fiano di Avellino is probably the best-known example of this variety, and they can be excellent. Ampelographers speculate that it may be one of the oldest grape varieties, going back to Ancient Rome or even Greek times. Fiano is also proving successful in Sicily and Puglia too. I find some of the Sicilian versions a little too light, possibly because the grapes have been picked very early and/or high yields - Fiano does not crop heavily. The Michele Biancardi is one of the best I have tasted for a while from anywhere, a lovely, pure fruity wine at a very fair price". (John Wilson, wilsononwine.ie, 4 Sep 2015).
