The 2020 Fiano di Avellino Bechar lifts up with a savory and rich bouquet that blends blanched almond with freshly sliced pear and hints of smoke. This rushes the palate with a decadent mix of silky textures, ripe orchard fruits, candied citrus and sweet inner florals, all motivated by brilliant acidity. Nuances of green melon mix with ginger and salty minerals to create a reverberation of tension through the long and dramatic finale. This showboat of a Fiano will win a lot of hearts.
Score: 92 points -- Eric Guido, Vinous, 2021
