Fiano is considered Campania’s most noble white grape, possibly dating back to Roman times but definitely documented in the 12th century, when the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II is recorded as buying it. Forgotten until the 1970s, it has made a spectacular come-back. This wine ages well, developing complexity in the bottle.
