Fiano by Merumalia, on the nose it's quite complex with intense fruity and aromatic herbs smells. The sip is characterized by an intense sapidity and a quite long persistence. The vineyard are grown on the north side of volcanic, rocky soil (mineral rich) of Castelli Romani, respecting the nature and the environment. The FIANO grapes production has an upper limit of 8 tons per hectar (much less then permitted). Grapes are pressed very softly in inert environment. To limit the generation of sulphites, the fermentation initiated with selected yeast, is thermally controlled in inox containers. The wine is ageing in inox and in bottle.
