Intense and golden in the glass, complex perfumes of bergamot, jasmine and orange peel with some nuttiness lead onto a savoury palate of waxy oranges, almonds and notes of earl grey and spice. Slight tannins provide structure and body but are balanced with a minerality. The finish of lavender honey on the long finish.

Additional Information:  Originally tomato and grain farmers, the Zampaglione family farm was one of the first in Southern Italy to convert to organic practices in 1990. In 2002, the family tried something brave and new, planting one plot of the Fiano grape and in 2004 the ‘Don Chiscotte’ was created. The traditional name for the Fiano grape variety is ‘Vitis apiana’, the translation means ‘the vine beloved of bees’, you can understand why they are so attracted to it. 

The biodynamically farmed vineyards are in Alta Irpinia, at 800 metres above sea level and grown in volcanic and clay soils. The grapes are carefully hand harvested from three separate parcels before being taken to the winery where they undergo an extended maceration on their skins for 10 days. Spontaneous fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks without any temperature control using indigenous yeasts before resting on the lees. The wine is not fined or filtered before bottling.
