A truly unique, primeval style Fiano from century-old, pre-phylloxera vines cultivated in volcanic soil in the Lapio CRU. A white wine crafted to defy time. Fermentation for 60 days “sous voile”in oak tanks in a temperature controlled environment. Aged in 500litre Chestnut, acacia and oak casks.
Antique golden colour with amber hues. Extremely complex bouquet with an almost volcanic character of gunpowder aromas, backed up by scents of hazelnut, grapefruit and braised apples with a light oxidised touch. The taste is tight and long, with nervy acidity and a mineral persistence.
Producer Information: Joaquin
In a small and beautiful town called Montefalcione, located in the Campania region of southern Italy, lies the winery of Joaquin, built in 1999 and known for two of the greatest DOCG wines produced in the area. Fiano di Avellino and Aglianico Taurasi.
Raffaele Pagano, the colourful owner of Joaquin Wines first produced his own “non-family winery” wines in 2006 and ever since has been very clear about what he wants to achieve… “To me, it’s all about finding the right grape that is matched to the right soil. I decided to look for authentic vineyards to grow local grapes, which I think is how everyone should do it.”
