2019 Terredora di Paolo Fiano di Avellino Terre di Dora

2019 Terredora di Paolo Fiano di Avellino Terre di Dora, 90 points

The 2019 Fiano Terre di Dora impresses with dried flowers, incense and almond paste complemented by peach and mango notes. Silky contours usher in mineral-tinged white stone fruits, zesty green citrus and exotic spice. While gorgeous already, the 2019 offers good near-potential. (EG)


Cellar Favorites

Clos dioterie 1983

1983 Domaine Charles Joguet Chinon Clos de la Dioterie

Though I have always adored the Loire, I never had the opportunity to devote time à la Burgundy or Bordeaux. However, in recent weeks, several exceptional mature Loire wines crossed my path. I would be remiss not writing about them.
