Generous and savory coastal Fiano, fruity impact of citrus and white peach, nuances of chamomile and honey. Fresh, sapid, very long on the palate with perfect correspondence between nose and mouth.
Ideal for baked fish or in salt crust, first and second courses from the sea but also fresh cheeses.
Asterìas means starfish in Greek. It is the company’s first white wine, and is made from Fiano grapes. The star symbolizes guiding light, but it also speaks of the inspiration that comes from Monte Stella, a massif in Cilento National Park that towers 1131 metres above sea level. Its peak looks down on our vineyard, nestled between the mountain and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
100% Fiano sourced from two different vineyards, one with typical schist soil (30% limestone, 30% clay and 30% sandstone with marl on the bottom layer). Second vineyard is sand and clay only.
Aged for 6 months for 75% in steel tanks and 25% in French oak barrels.
The Tempa di Zoè 2021 Fiano Asterìas (with 9,000 bottles released) shows a hint of sulfur or thermal bath that takes a few minutes to blow off, although it doesn't completely disappear. You do get fruit tones of pear, quince, passion fruit and a hint of banana that adds a mildly tropical character to the wine. Winemaking is in stainless steel only. Anticipated Maturity: 2022-2024
