2019 Fiano Luigi Maffini
Another stunner from Luigi. This pure Fiano is the best expression of this lively, textured variety we have found. Perfumed and fresh with peach and apricot, wild flowers, touch of lime. Palate is zesty with lime juice, peach flesh A satisfying Mineral line, crisp acidity - but generous fruit extract. Gently perfumed and very satisfying. This is now the fifth vintage that is certified Organic. L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.

A case chock-full of sophisticated charmers from the length and breadth of Italy. From the high valleys of the Alto Adige near the Austrian border right down to the gleaming coast of Campania south of Naples.
Our Italian friends really know what’s important in life - and getting the food and wine 'right' is key! We've got half of that covered here with this delicious mix of whites. There is an unmistakable precision that runs through them all. These are wines fresh enough to drink as aperitivi - but with the bags of texture and complexity that make them all the perfect partner for the season's fare too. Saluti!
