Two native Italian grapes, Greco and Fiano, join forces in this aromatic, peach-scented wine from the volcanic slopes of Mount Vulture in Basilicata. Intensely juicy, fresh and rounded, this is great with a simple grilled fish but also pairs well with a creamy fruit dessert such as syllabub. Sustainable production and suitable for vegetarians. Buy this if….you want an aromatic white with lots of delicate fruit..

'A fist fight between a peach and a pineapple.'

The Producer

Valentino Sciotti took over this small cooperative in Basilicata (the arch in Italy's heel) in the heart of the Aglianico del Vulture region in 2008. The region is dominated by the extinct Mount Vulture and farmers today are reaping the rewards from the volcanos' destructive past thanks to the mineral-rich soils which lend complexity to the grapes.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"From Basilicata, a fascinating volcanic region not far from Naples, this blend of two local aromatic varieties, Fiano and Greco, is a fabulous wine. Light gold in colour, it's light gold in flavour too: juicy golden delicious apple, nectarine and delightful floral nuances on the nose move seamlessly into pure peach and mango on the palate, ripe and so pure, before a delicate, gossamer lime acidity extends the finish."

The Region

The low trained vineyards are situated on the volcanic slopes of Mount Vulture at altitudes of up to 800 metres. The long slow growing season, due to the high altitude of the vineyards, ensures that Vulture is one of the last areas in Italy to harvest, so late ripening grapes such as Greco and Fiano are ideally situated to the poor soils of this area.

Lemon & Parsley Fishcakes

A great lunch or supper option served with green salad or chips, (depending on your attitude), these light fish cakes are crying out for a fresh, zingy and in the nicest way possible, fairly neutral white to pair up with the lemon and parsley notes in the dish.
