Winemaker Notes

100% Fiano di Avellino grown at 1,485 feet above sea level with northeastern exposure. The grapes were harvested in October, crushed and vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation was partially carried out and the wine was aged minimally prior to being bottled. The Aminea Fiano di Avellino has a notable personality of minerals and nuts, and a light, golden color. It is best served with fish dishes, white meats and soft cheeses at 50* F.

Aminea, Italy
Aminea was founded in 1997 and produced their first vintage in 1999. The winery is located in the town of Montemarano in the heart of the Taurasi appellation. Besides being known as the largest and best producer of Aglianico for Taurasi, the area is famous for chestnuts. Montemarano is a tiny village located in highest part of the mountain chain which encompasses the region of Irpinia. This hilly area runs along and overlooks the Calore river. Over 2,000 years ago, the area was settled by the Aminei. Even at that time, they were producing a wine call Aminea which is known today as Fiano. The area used to be covered by one of the largest forests in southern Italy. This part of Italy has always had lush and fertile soils that produced abundant fruits and vegetables. Because the soils are so rich in minerals, the Aglianico grown here tends to be more structured with greater longevity.

Today, the Aminea company is owned and managed by 3 partners, Michele Fede, Michele Morsa and Domenico Morgillo. Each have individual professions but they are united by a common passion for wine. The 3 families own 45 acres of land but purchase wine from growers to reach approximately twice as much as they are able to produce for themselves. Aminea is a dynamic, young operation with plans to build new winery within 3 years.

Italian White Wine

The rolling hills and endless coastlines of Italy deliver a unique diversity of soils and climate to foster a number of regional specialties. With a multitude of indigenous varieties that thrive exclusively here, the selection of white wines offers a range of styles and flavors.

The most well-known white variety in Italy is of course Pinot Grigio. Typically found in the northern Italian regions, the light, fresh and easy-drinking options can be found in the Veneto region, while the richer, more complex styles come from Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige. These two northeast regions are also crafting delicions Pinot Bianco and a regional specialty, Friulano.

In Piedmont, two white regions shine. The crisp and zippy Gavi, made with a Cortese grape, and Arneis, a variety that produces a subtle by dry wine. In the Veneto, the Garganegna grape creates the wine of Soave, a zesty but medium-bodied wine full of rich stone fruit and floral notes.

Further south, you'll find the pretty and floral Falenghina, rich and tropical Grillo and zesty Greco. Head to Sicily to discover the delicious and complex Etna Biancos, made with the Carricante grape in the island's volcanic soils.

If you enjoy a tangy but textured white wine with seafood, head to Sardinia and try out the Vermentino there. The grape is also found in other Italian provinces and is always a delight.
