The 2019 Fiano is an intriguing combination of intense aromatics balanced with a soft, clean creaminess, making it uniquely enthralling, sip after sip. It captivates with concentrated aromas of lemongrass, lychee, and ripe apricot, while underlying accents of freshly baked brioche and jasmine unify into a luscious bouquet. The palate is composed of the cool, rich softness of key lime pie and orange creamsicle, with lively notes of pomelo and stone fruit, and just a touch of green and white tea. This wine is well-proportioned, striking yet decadent, and is fabulous now, but will continue to evolve over the next few years. Drink now through 2024.
