Most people don’t know just how many Italian grape varietals there are. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Italy has authorized over 350 different grape varieites (but there are over 500 different kinds of grapes in circulation within the country). When you consider almost 100% of French wine comes from only 60 different grapes, the variety to be found in Italian wines is staggering.
This Boccantino Fiano is a dry, aromatic and slightly floral white wine. It is a great choice for those looking to explore the myriad grape varieties Italy produces. It is partly aged in wooden barrels for 3 months. It has elegant aromas of fruit and almonds, citrus and tropical notes.
Fresh, aromatic and slightly off dry on the palate, with a long and pleasant finish. Ideal with shellfish and soft cheeses. Or, try this with sweet chilli tempura prawns.
