2021 Fiano, Carlomagno, Puglia
2021 Fiano, Carlomagno, Puglia
Fresh and vibrant just as fiano should be and is one of our best sellers. Melon and citrusy fruit on the palate, deliciously moreish, a wonderful aperitif with seasonal canapés.
"Southern Italian winemakers have always been reliable providers of gutsy red wines at lower prices than their northern peers. These are wines made from grape varieties with names – negroamaro, nero d’avola, aglianico – that are suggestive to the point of onomatopoeic of their deep-dark, sweet-sour, heady characteristics. And they have a loyal following among British Italophiles looking to bring some of the warm south to northern shores. In my experience, the Mezzogiorno’s white wines can’t count on quite the same loyalty or recognition. Is there a sense, perhaps, that we can’t quite square the sun-baked vineyards of Campania, Puglia or Sicily with the freshness that we want our white wines to provide? Possibly. Or it may be that it took a while longer for winemakers in the region to make wines in a way that fully displays their local white varieties’ strengths. Either way, the easy, open charm of fiano – the ripest of citrussy fruit, some peachy fleshiness, a ripple of sea breeziness – is very much apparent in Puglia’s great-value Carlogmagno."
David Williams, The Guardian, 30th May 2021
"The 2017 Carlomagno Fiano from the Salento peninsula in Puglia - you know, the so-called boot of Italy - is utterly charming. Named after the Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne, and produced by the celebrated winemaker and consultant Stefano Chioccioli, its light and fresh and full of sun-baked melon, banana and citrus fruit. In other words, perfect vinous fare for a British winter."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator (previous vintage).
