2013 Coriole Fiano
Perhaps little known at the minute around the mass Australian wine market but Fiano is becoming a firm favourite around friends and family at my house. Coriole’s 2013 vintage is helping the cause to no end with a wine that is a balance of fresh crisp citrus, stone fruit and textural body weight. The result is the perfect wine for a Sunday afternoon of Italian gluttony as you reach for another helping of the Shellfish and saffron risotto that you don’t need but can’t resist. More complex and interesting than many other whites around but with enough zest and life to appeal to the scenesters, who just want to sit, sip and be seen! Add Fiano to the list of things Naples has given us, a list that includes the humble Pizza and the beginning of the downfall of soccer great Maradonna! coriole
