An original native from the Italian region of Campania, Fiano has found an interesting Mediterranean citric fruit note with our plantings in Sicily. From a winemaking point of view, our use of Riesling isolated yeasts for the Extra Special wines has been designed to accentuate minerality and flint like notes in the wine.
This wine is the result of a close partnership between Asda and Cantine Settesoli where it is sourced. Based in Menfi, the Cantina is one of Italy's most innovative and largest co-operatives and directly or indirectly employs the entire population of Menfi with over 2,300 members and 6000 ha. This wine captures the sunshine of Sicily in its fullness whilst retaining balance and harmony.

Sicilian summer.I'm a retired wine consultant and urge you to try this unfamiliar Sicilian wine. Fiano has been around for a long time but has never had the exposure that it deserves. Modern winemaking methods has meant that Fiano is now a more consistent tasting wine. It has some acidity mingled with fresh citrus flavours. This particular brand from Asda is certainly worth trying .... chill it .... pour it .... enjoy it! .... especially WHEN the sun shines!!

Really refreshing Vino. Hic.Superb wine and truly great value for money given there was a further 10% deducted from an already reduced price, and of course there was free delivery.
It just shows you get quality wines at ASDA without paying ridiculous prices.
