Mastroberardino - Radici Fiano Di Avellino - Campania
Overview: The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.
Once a nearly forgotten varietal of ancient Irpinia, the Mastroberardino family has revived the Fiano grape into a world-class white wine. Careful site selection from one of their estate vineyards ensures a powerful, full white wine. The term Radici refers to “roots.” The branch depicted on the label is from a painting by Micozzi, featured on the vaults of Mastroberardino’s historic cellar.
Tasting Notes: Straw yellow. Aromas including hints of pear, pineapple, acacia, hazelnuts, and citrus fruits, with some hawthorn and floral notes. Balanced acidity and soft on the palate, with white peach and grapefruit leading to dried fruits.
Pairing: Pair with seafood salad, fresh, young cheeses and baked or grilled fish.
