Wine & Spirits Calls Vadiaperti Fiano “the Chenin of Italy”

Sep 16, 2016

Our newest partner in Campania, Azienda Agricola Vadiaperti is on a roll. Just this month his peerless Fiano di Avellino ‘Aipierti’ was named a Critic’s Pick at Wine & Spirits. Here’s a brief snippet; read all the text in the image below.

What’s more, Wine & Spirits Editor Josh Greene called winemaker Raffaele Troisi’s Fiano “the Chenin of Italy.” Wow!

It’s richly textured, the apple and lemon notes accented by smoke and herbal tea, yet what takes center stage is the intense salinity. The core of bright acidity promises that this will age well over the next decade—a fact that Troisi likes to emphasize by treating guests to Aipierti bottlings going back to the 1980s.
