"Lithe and crisp, with flavors of crunchy pear, apple blossom and ground ginger, underscored by a tang of saline that chimes on the finish. Drink now through 2023."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Falanghina is the signature grape of the Sannio DOC. This indigenous grape is known for its fresh, mineral, perfume-y and fruit-forward flavor profile, though it can be made in many different styles, including sparkling and passito. The name probably comes from the Latin falangae, referring to poles that were traditionally used to support the vine’s canopy. Harvested from the South-Eastern facing Apice estate in Sannio DOC, on volcanic, mineral-rich, sandy-loam soils. Tasting Notes: Pale lemon-green. Aromas of ripe pineapple, citrus fruits and white flowers. Notes of honeysuckle and toasted almond on the palate are lifted by lively acidity. Pair with rich seafood dishes, anchovy-based sauces or flavorful, raw ceviche.
