Tasting Notes

This white blend will open up given some air. On the nose, you'll find mostly savory aromas of chamomile and hay, but on the palate, the wine turns tropical with full-flavored yellow fruits, pineapple, golden apple, subtle florality, honey, vanilla, garrigue (Mediterranean herbs) and a savory volcanic note. It is round in mouthfeel and dense with some perceptible tannins.

WINE INFORMATION

Located just a few kilometers from the center of Rome, Italy’s historic Tenuta di Fiorano resides between the Appian Way and the slopes of the Alban Hills. As a pioneer of organic viticulture in the mid-twentieth century, Fiorano continues the family traditions today.

The Tenuta di Fiorano estate is now owned by Prince Alessandrojacopo Boncompagna Ludovisi, who grew up on the property and was taught by his uncle, Prince Alberico, who passed away in 2005. With Tancredi Biondi-Santi and Veronelli as colleagues and friends, Prince Alberico pioneered in planting organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the 1940’s and 50’s, along with Malvasia Candida and Sémillon.

After the 1998 harvest all plantings were pulled up. About 7-10 years later uncle and nephew replanted the estate with the red vineyard planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot while the white vineyard was replanted with Grechetto and Viognier. The soils in both vineyards are volcanic pozzolanic.

After harvest grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts and then aged for 12-18 months in 10 hL oak and chestnut barrels.
