Background

The peak that overlooks Valdelsa on one hand and Valdipesa on the other was once the dominion of the noble Florentine Alfani family. The lands, named for the original owners and later shortened from ‘Alfiano’ to ‘Fiano,’ still retain the rustic charm of a medieval village, with farmhouses, stables, an oil mill, and the old chapel eliciting bygone eras. Bought by the Bing family in 1940, the estate produces some of the best Chianti coming from the Florentine hills as well as the Super Tuscan Fianesco, the dessert wine Vin Santo, Grappa, and olive oil. The cellars command over 65 hectares in the Poggio ai Monti vineyard, where the soil is clay and pebbles, while 14 hectares are found about a kilometer to the northeast in Novoli, where three types of soil are intertwined: tufa, clay, and a sand/pebble mixture. Exacting use of numerous clones gleans the best of each varietal. Fattoria di Fiano remains a family business today, with Ugo Bing at the forefront aided by consultant Federico Staderini.

Tasting Notes

Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah. When the vintage is good, we make the Riserva. Warm and complex, is a persistent wine, with smell of flowers and red ripe fruits. Try it with stuffed pigeon, guinea fowl with sage, or pasta with wild boar ragu.
