Villa Diamante Fiano di Avellino "Clos d'Haut" '20
Fiano is multifaceted, capable of displaying terroir. “Clos d’Haut” is the most recent addition to the Villa Diamante lineup. This Fiano comes from a single parcel, 1.5 hectares in size, in Montefredane. The classic clay soil of the region is also combined with sand in this vineyard. This is the highest-elevation parcel, at around 530 meters. It faces northeast, and the vines are around 15 years old. Antoine wanted to express the more smoky, saline side of the variety, and the 2020 “Clos d’Haut” delivers.
Salty, flinty notes can be found on the nose, along with hints of pear skin and lemon oil. The wine has beautiful texture, with plenty of dry extract, notes of citrus and almond and a lactic, creamy quality in the mid palate. All of this is beautifully framed by its acidity. The finish is long, and while delicious now, this will gain in complexity for several years to come.
Drink this alongside a crudo of John Dory or even scallops, simply dressed with some high-quality extra virgin olive oil and citrus peel.
