Ben says

★ Good Wine Aromas of white peach, fresh apricot and orange oil. Silky palette with fleshy pink lady apples, peach, jasmine, green asparagus on the finish. Bitter and fresh. Fruit feels overripe, likely too much skin contact. Both are a shame.

Ben's given the Bechar Fiano di Avellino a BFWR one star

Food Pairing

This wood work with limone d’amalfi risotto because of the fruity elements. Would also work with grilled pork.
