Very fine, with a pretty nose of acacia flower and clover honey. Superb weight and depth to the voluminous wash, which brims with mouthwatering flavours of pineapple, sweet lemon and almonds, with a taut streak of grapefruit acidity giving firmness, structure and refreshment. Just, wow!

Great with braised chicken with lemon and olives.

This unoaked IGP Salento white is made from 100% hand-harvested Fiano. At the winery the grapes are selected using a state-of-the-art sorting table that ensures only supremely ripe, healthy grapes go into the fermentation tank. Fiano is a high quality, in vogue, variety that has been widely grown across southern Italy (esp. Campania) for hundreds of years. Its sweet berries are very attractive to bees, and its old name Vitis apiana means "the vine beloved of bees."

Schola Sarmenti, a stunning winery with soaring ceilings sculpted from local tuff and lecce stone, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is run by the Marra and Calabrese families. The vineyards are farmed organically and within sight of the warm waters of the Adriatic. Schola Sarmenti practises "green harvesting", where a portion of the immature crop is sacrificed (i.e. picked and discarded) mid-season to increase the ripeness and quality of the remaining bunches. It also uses the ancient Puglian vine training system, Alberello.
