Back to the Co Op again and another offering from their excellent range of wines, a Fiano 2014 from southern Italy.
As regular readers know I am a big fan of Co Op and their wines and have been really impressed by most of their ‘Truly Irresistible’ range and this is no exception. I was initially alerted to this wine by a recommendation by wine journalist Brian Elliot from the website MidWeek Wines, so when popping into my local store for a loaf of bread and some milk a bottle kind of found its way into my basket.
Pretty good-looking label on what turned out to be a pretty decent wine with a lovely deep golden colour and although fairly muted their were aromas of Peach, honey, nectarines and cloves.
First mouthful revealed an oily texture, juicy nectarines and ripe peaches along with an underlying and very nice smokey honey flavour, there was also a nice background nuttiness to the wine which was very appealing.
For me this is one of the better Fiano’s I’ve tasted recently especially around this price mark (around £7). So if you have never tasted Fiano get yourself down to your local Co Op and try this, you may well be surprised, Excellent
My rating 8.5/10 Corks
