There's tons of personality on the nose of this white, with plenty of red and green apple, bosc pear, and white peach. Citrusy notes of candied lemon add brightness, and Fiano's signature nuttiness, reminiscent of blanched almonds, lingers around the edges.
Dry and light-bodied, Danimi's Fiano is all about clean lines and fresh flavours. Packed with more apple and pear that leads into a long, energetic finish, with just the right amount of acidity to balance the richer, nutty flavours.
Ciro's wife Caterina swears by Spaghetti alle vongole as the perfect match for this wine, and we are inclined to agree! Look for her recipe for this classic pasta dish with fresh clams in the November guide.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.
All of you home-bakers out there will recognize this smell the next time you use marzipan.
Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
2022 - 2024
We've always loved Ciro Urciuolo's wines at WineCollective, so we're thrilled to feature the flagship white from his Danimi estate, located in Ciro's home region of Irpina, in Campagnia. The Danimi name is a tribute to Ciro's three children, and is a combination of the first two letters of each of their names: David, Nick, and Michela. The commitment to family and to the land runs deep, and Ciro's wines are consistently a faithful (and delicious!) expression of the land and to the region's wealth of indigenous cultivars.
If you're unfamiliar with Fiano, it's a great introduction to the grapes of Campagnia. It's the region's most important white grape variety, and it's thought to have ancient origins in this part of Italy. Now making a long-overdue comeback, wines made from Fiano are aromatic and expressive, and often display an alluring nutty quality. Enjoy this Fiano at about 8 C over the next 1-2 years.
