Fiano Paone Cantina del Barone, natural wine, unique smokey flavour, fresh and moreish Fiano. Cantina del Barone make great examples of this superb little white grape variety. Grown for centuries in Campania where it finds its truest and most delicious expression, Fiano is believed to be the grape behind the ancient Roman wine, Apianum. It is characterised by low yields and subsequent intensity of flavour. The volcanic soils in the area of Avellino also give the wines distinctive minerality and a lovely sappy, savoury flavour and smokiness. The Paone (Peacock) Fiano natural wine made by Luigi Sarno is so named due the presence of these elegant birds on their tiny 2.5 hectare estate. Luigi says of this wine, 'this is easy drinking Campanian white that you can sip and enjoy any time, anywhere and with anything'. I would add to that, it is a wine of distinctive character and depth, dry, medium bodied, fresh with aromas of hay, wood smoke and ripe stone fruits. Also a great price for this tiny production artisan natural white, the new 2014 vintage, just been bottled is delicious, try it with some hard Italian cheeses or maybe Gnocchi with mushrooms!

The tiny 2.5 hectare estate of Cantina del Barone lies tucked away in the Hills of Cesinali in the province of Avellino. In fact, from the road, you would barely notice it is there, so small and hidden away is the vineyard. The estate was owned by a Neapolitan Count who entrusted it to the Sarno family to look after for nearly a century. Antonio Sarno's dream became reality when in the early 80's he finally bought estate and planted the first vines of Fiano. In the late 90's the estate was taken over by Antonio's son Luigi, who, after studying Oenology at University in Puglia, returned to the family farm to breath a new life into the business and start to make World Class Fiano. From the outset, Luigi has been committed to natural production, the vineyard is now certified organic, all the wines are fermented with wild yeast in small stainless steel 'Cuve' and he uses only tiny amounts of sulphur at bottling. The wines have generally about 35 mg/l of total sulphur. Luigi is passionate about his vineyard, he operates the whole place single handed and as well as acting as wine maker and consultant for his friend Angelo at Cantina dell'Angelo up the road in Tufo. He is also one of the nicest and most humble wine makers you can meet and his wines are an honest reflection of his personality. He produces only about 12000 bottles a year of Fiano in two distinctive Cuvee. Paone for early drinking and the richer and smokier Particella 928 for longer ageing. The wines are pure and delicious and are getting better and better every year.

    Geoff from Shropshire13/03/2017

    An excellent wine with woodsmoke overlaying fresh approachable fruit flavours. Complex and satisfying. A snip at the price for a wine of this class.
