If you have a fancy to change up your Pinot Grigio or other crisp northern white wine, fruity Fiano wines from the sunny south could be just what you are looking for…

Native to Campania, the Fiano grape in its DOCG appellation Fiano di Avellino is grown on the volcanic slopes in around the commune of Avellino. This is an area that has a climate comparable to that of Piedmont, which as we know produces some of Italy’s finest white wines. Given Avellino’s relative proximity to Naples and the Amalfi Coast, conditions here are quite different from those of its coastal neighbours: it has much cooler average temperatures (thanks to the impinging Apennines), greater elevations and mineral-rich volcanic soils that produce some world-class vintages. It enjoys a fame that has grown well beyond the borders of Italy thanks to its fresh, intense flavour, which has proved popular to a wider international audience, and also benefits from an accessible entry price point.

About Italia!

Our new issue will take you from the chilly alpine splendour of Courmayeur in Valle d’Aosta right down to Sicily – visit the majestic Valley of the Temples near Agrigento or stay nearby at the Verdura Resort. A recent fl ying visit to Florence inspired our ‘48 Hours’ feature this month; from new discoveries at the Duomo to a new way of getting around (by tuk-tuk), this venerable city is always a pleasure to visit. And, turning to another alternative mode of transport, we take a tour around Lake Garda by e-bike.
