This is a later picked Fiano which spends eight months in new oak, from a vineyard with a more limestone based soil, and more concentrated and intense than the Kratos. L&S (Feb 2014)

(100% fiano): Bright yellow. Sweet aromas of honeyed fruit salad, canned pineapple and vanilla. Rich, dense and lush, but given needed lift and definition by lively acidity and candied ginger spice. Really resonates on the clean, long finish. Rating: 89 Ian d'Agata - Stephen Tanzer website (Apr 2014)
Drink Much more oak in evidence than their Kratos. It's a pleasant scent, but it definitely dominates. There's some tasty almond and bitter grapefruit character. 2013-2015 Rating: 16.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2014)
Luigi Maffini's vineyards are on the coast of Campania, south of Naples, across the bay from Positano, and planted with the local grapes, Fiano for the whites and Aglianico for the reds. While the family's first vines were planted in the seventies, the real beginning of this winery dates from 1996.
Luigi and his wife Raffaella are both graduates of Naples university in agricultural sciences. Luigi specialised in viticulture and winemaking. Ten years elapsed between our first tasting of his wines and getting Luigi 'on board', but he has now been with L&S since 2009.
Raffaella and Luigi run the vineyards organically, and share the land with their two children and three dogs, as well as hares, foxes, hedgehogs, hawks and wild boars, with which they are happy to live in peace. There are now two vineyard sites, at Castellabate and Giungano, so some of the wines are DOC Cilento and some DOC Paestum.
