Fiano


White grape variety, predominantly known for being the grape of Campania's Fiano di Avellino DOCG in Southern Italy. Fiano is an ancient Roman variety, potentially the grape used in the production of Apianum (an acclaimed ancient wine from the Roman times). It is low yielding and produces very little juice, which prompted growers to replace it with other higher yielding varieties in the 19th and 20th century. However thanks to modern winemaking techniques as well as a demand for indigenous, classic grapes, production is currently increasing. The grape is also used in the McLaren Vale region of Australia; where production is small but increasing.
