Mastoberardino Radici ‘Fiano di Avellino’ DOCG 12.0 % alcohol about $20
The wine had a beautiful straw color. I found it to be delicate yet complex and elegant, not the least bit thin. At the first pairing it held up to spicy barbequed chicken and barbequed eggplant slices. Among the many flavors, it was spicy and smoky.
The next pairing was with whole wheat pasta and chicken meat balls in a peppery tomato sauce. Here the wine took on a floral character.
I really feel that this wine deserved its top of the line designation.Click to access the original article
