History It is an aromatic variety cultivated in Puglia since 1200. For a long time it was believed to be a sub-variety of Fiano and for this reason Apulian growers have now called it Aromatic Fiano, now as Fianello and more recently as Fiano Minutolo. Like other ancient Apulian non-productive autochthones (small bunches and sprouts), it was close to extinction when in 2000 some forward-looking producers and oenologists undertook a rigorous mass selection in the vineyards of the Itria valley where the vine was and still is , most widespread. In 2001 there was definite clarity and scientific studies proved that the then named Fiano Minutolo had nothing to do with the Fiano, but showed kinship with the White Moscato and Moscato di Alessandria. Following these discoveries and in order to avoid unnecessary confusion, it was decided to use Minutolo as the official name for this variety.
