ROCKSTAR Italian White!
Incredible white. The real deal. Thrilling. Try something new and I am pretty sure you will have an "epiphany" like I did. Wow!
So there I was, tasting through a baziliion wines like I do every day, and then I got struck by lightning. THIS is Fiano? The Campania grape? But...but...it's like white Burgundy! It's freakin' amazing! Crazy complex, amazing acidity...man, I gotta know more. Turns out, there is a quite a story. This wine is almost exclusively snapped up by savvy sommeliers around the world, so it's a treat to have some to sell!! It's going in my cellar!
Luigi Moio is the master behind this wine. A producer, researcher, master teacher, and counselor who has inspired the efforts of many of the most important houses of Italy’s south and has become, in his own right, the creator of some of the area’s most exquisite wines, both red and white. His professional life included a series of collaborations with houses in Italy’s south, many of whom – thanks to his gifted advice and leadership – became very significant names in this part of the country. But, like many another major oenologist, the not so secret desire to become a producer in his own right was always part of his plans, and took concrete form in the Campania region’s most historic and prestigious zone, Irpinia in the provincial of Avellino.
These wines are amazingly intense without being heavy or cloying, displaying such deep, vivid varietal and terroir character. Frighteningly good. Get a few and see for yourself!!
2016 QUINTODECIMO FIANO DI AVELLINO "EXULTET" --- $56.95!!
Single-vineyard, organically farmed. Exultet is a sophisticated and elegant interpretation of Fiano di Avellino. Yellow and luminous with green reflections and fragrances of linden, acacia and thyme, this is well structured with flavors of exotic fruit, citrus, sage, acacia blossoms and honey and a very soft mineral note. This particular elegance also derives from a partial fermentation in small oak barrels. It is a wine with great longevity which can also age for some decades thanks to its richness and structure. Wonderful to experience and I hope you do so as well!
Only 60 bottles to sell!! While it lasts...!
