2018/19 Fiano Puglia I.G.P ‘Jesce’

$29.00

There’s a reason why Fiano was adored by the Italian Royal family through the ages.

This Fiano in particular is a much beloved southern Italian dry white, produced in the wine region of the ‘Murgia’, Puglia. Produced through certified organic farming methods and hand-picked harvests, the quality of this wine and freshness of flavour really shines.

An excellent example of this region’s signature grapes, the wine has a generous aroma of white flowers, green apple and nuances of lychee. Fresh and persistent in the mouth.

This wine is like a summer dream and has us feeling some serious nostalgia for the crystal blue coasts of southern Italy.

Whether you pair this Fiano with a seafood feast or you enjoy the crisp dry notes of this drop as a simple ‘Yay it’s Friday!’ drink, we’re pretty sure you’ve just found one of your new favourite types of white wine.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

This Fiano is the bomb. Really. So crisp and fresh, which is always a winner in our books.

 

The flavours of white flowers and citrus are strengthened by the fine minerality of the vineyard’s soil and through the careful organic farming of the Zullo family of Tenuta Viglione. The aroma here is lovely, nostalgic and enchanting; orange blossom honey, lychee and green apple.

 

This wine lends itself to ‘knock off’ drinks, summer occasions such as Christmas Lunch or lazy Sunday barbecues AND the refined dinner party setting.

 

If we wanted to get super specific about some ‘near perfect’ food pairings, some dishes comes to mind: sashimi or tuna carpaccio, white seafood spaghetti, grilled prawns, freshly shucked oysters, seafood risotto, spaghetti carbonara. For a more ‘Aussie’ twist, this wine would be delicious with Fish and Chips, or a cheese platter with a creamy brie or mozzarella present. Keep to seafoods or creamy dishes, and you’ll be in heaven.

The Winery

Tenuta Viglione Farm was founded with viticulture of the Zullo Family and their passion for pugliese wines. The Winery was born from the desire to nurture the enormous wine-growing potential of the area between the municipalities of Gioia del Colle (Ba) and Santeramo in Colle (Ba) of Puglia. Tenuta Viglione has been producing quality wines in these territories for decades.

 

At 480m above sea level, the limestone soil is covered in pebbles and features remnants of sea shells due to their vicinity to the coast. This, along with the hospitable climate of Puglia, allows the grape growth to flourish, and the end wine products of this winery to stand out with their flavours, complexity, minerality and aroma.

 

The Zullo family produces characteristic wines of the area, whilst using techniques and the most productive & advanced methodologies – from the context of caring for land and grape, to the processing of the wine, the transformative phase, and its arrival to the bottle.

 

After many years, driven by his passion for the art of good wine, love for his own land and an attachment to the family and its winemaking origins, Giovanni Zullo (third generation of the Zullo family) was honoured to step up and continue to deepen the quality of all aspects of Tenuta Viglione wines. Most recently, Giovanni has worked tirelessly to a process of restructuring and modernization of the ancient Masseria “viglione” which today represents the new characteristic setting of the family Farm. Recently the winery has become a certified Organic Wine producer.
