Why's this wine for you?
Nestled in the hills above Naples lies the beating heart of southern Italian white wine. Here, in the region of Campania, you'll find ancient white grape varieties like Falanghina, Fiano and Greco, plus reds like Aglianico and Piedirosso (locally known as Per'e Palummo). This hilly area is also home to one of Italy's most respected, proudly old producers, La Guardiense. Founded in 1962 with over 1000 farmers tending 2000 hectares, this producer brings together some of Campania's top grapegrowers with the modern winemaking nous to deliver delicious wines. You can see that combination writ large in this 2019 La Guardiense Fiano. It comes from the Sanno DOC, which is exclusively confined to the hillsides around Benevento, the surprisingly high altitude vineyards of the area helping to make some seriously fresh white wines. In turn, this Fiano is a wonderfully fresh white wine. Lemony and taut, fruity yet with pithy acidity helping deliver energy and bite. It's like an ice cold glass of lemonade, except dry and fresh and beautifully tangy. Ultimately, this is an experience of a Campania summer in every glass. A fresh, but textural, white wine of effortless flavour and vitality
How's it taste?
Straw yellow with lighter highlights. It conveys a characteristic floral and fruity bouquet, reminiscent of apple and pear. Fresh on the palate, characterised by a pleasant acid structure and a savoury touch, before closing with a slight hint of almond.Also ideal as an aperitif, it pairs well with fish-based rice and pasta dishes, particularly with shellfish, mild cheeses and white meats.
