Fiano – Terre Siciliane IGP

Fiano was recently introduced to Sicily, where it has found the perfect terroir and really flourishes, which is why we decided to plant Fiano vines on the estate in 2010. This year is our first vintage of Santa Tresa Fiano and this wonderful grape variety has impressed us immensely.  Vibrant, fresh and full of character, our Fiano is different in style to our well-established Rina Ianca (a blend of Grillo and Viognier) and we are delighted to have two such interesting Sicilian white wines to offer to our customers.

Wine maker’s tasting notes

Tropical fruits are very noticeable in the bouquet and continue to characterise the palate, together with a really zesty, lemony acidity, which gives the wine an excellent balance.  There are a whole spectrum of flavours to discover, ranging from floral notes to honey and lots of different characteristics in between.

Food pairing

Santa Tresa Fiano makes a lovely aperitif and is delicious with a platter of sea food.  In Sicily, we would have something like Pasta Marinara with the Fiano – prawns and muscles served in a small amount of fresh tomato sauce over linguine.
