Zagreo – Skin Contact Fiano

Appellation: Roccamonfina IGP, Cacciagalli, Teano (Ce)

Varietal: 100% Fiano

Diane Iannaccone and Mario Basco of I Cacciagalli in Campania produce their extended skin contact ‘orange’ Fiano, “Zagreo” in amphorae with minimal intervention. The estates’s terrain is volcanic, it lies on the foot of the dormant Roccamonfina volcano. Fiano thrives in the volcanic soils bringing minerality to its natural richness and ageing potential.

Tasting Notes:
Complex aromas of wild herbs, chamomile, and fresh hay overlay just-picked apricot, white peach, and pear. In the mouth it is all confirmed with the typical Fiano notes of fruit, nuts and honey. There is also an earthy note and hints of citrus peel mid-palate that carries through on the lovely, skin-contact-tannic finish.
