*2013 Awarded Tre Bicchieri - Gambero Rosso 2016*
Villa Raiano is a modern family winery established in Campania in 1996. The estate is dedicated to producing a range of superb wines from local varieties Aglianico, Fiano and Greco - sourced from 20 hectares of their own organically farmed vines. While Raiano might be a relative spring chicken compared to some of Italy's grand historic estates, they are already garnering praise and winning top awards such as the highly respected Tre Bicchieri (three glasses) for the 2013 Ventidue Fiano.
A rich and textural Fiano from Raiano's finest vineyard plots at Lapio, around 500m above sea level. Once pressed and fermented the juice is refined in stainless steel for 10 months on fine lees to add further complexity. The delightful nose has delicate stone fruit aromas and light savoury notes. The palate is complex and textural, with pear and peach fruit, mineral and stony characters, crisp acidity and great length. Drink now and over the next five years.more ↓ less ↑
