Head south of the river for some sunshine flavours
If you like fuller wines but don’t want to always stick to Chardonnay, Fiano is an interesting alternative. It has a riper flavour and nutty edge which make it easy-drinking whilst having enough guts to not just fade away. Fiano is a traditional grape from the Campania region in Southern Italy so until recently it has been a local secret. Now you can find it in most shops. If you like it, then there’s an upgrade to Fiano di Avellino, which is a designated quality wine, it’s twice the price, but worth it.
