La Valentina Fiano 2013

La Valentina Fiano 2013 $35  ★★★★

Fiano is an ancient grape traditionally grown in Campania, Southern Italy and the grapes for this example are grown in San Valentino, a hillside town in the province of Pescara. Every November, Pescara hosts the Festa dei Cornuti, a parade that either (and here’s where things get blurry) supports or snorts at men with adulterous wives.  Yet purity prevails here.  Creamy white peach, honeysuckle, crushed shells and white pepper on the nose, followed by lemon and almond flavours and smoky tones on the finish.
