Tried this back in KansasCity this week:
1. Aia dei Colombi Sannio DOC: Fiano (13.5%; www.AiaDeiColombi.It) Guardia SanFramondi 2009
: Med.gold color; rather earthy/mineral/stony/flinty/chalky slight pineapple/pungent/nutmeg interesting nose; rather tart/tangy/grapefruity lean/metallic/steely/tinny mineral/stony slight pungent/skunky/mothballs rather strange flavor; med.short very tart/tangy/lean/eviscerated/grapefruity metallic/tinny finish; a rather lean/austere wine on the palate w/ little fruit but speaks of Fiano. $20.00 (CllrRat)
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Since BrianHarrington started making Fiano from PasoRobles, I've been trying as many Fianos as I can find. This one was a simple/pleasant/quotidian Fiano but doesn't hold a candle to Brian's rendition.
