The Fiano is from Sicily and has a smooth peachy, apricot taste with a refreshing lemony lift. It was beautiful with my lemon and garlic chicken at the weekend. Marcia Waters MW, OWC Head Buyer.

Miopasso is a small range of quality wines made with indigenous Italian grape varieties. The Fiano grape is low yielding and early ripening and produces crisp, well-balanced wine. Grown in the Belice Agrigento area - midway across Sicily on the southern coast - the grapes are hand-picked in mid September. They are then destemmed, soft pressed using a pneumatic press and left in contact with the skins for about 12 hours at 10° C for optimum extraction of the aromas. Fermentation takes place at 14-16°C. Malolactic fermentation is avoided in order to retain all the natural acidity of the wine. The wine is then left on its fine lees at a constant temperature of 16°C until the end of January. Prior to bottling at the end of February/beginning of March, there is a very gentle filtration.
