This white wine is made from predominately Falanghina (90%) with a small percentage of Fiano. There has been a renaissance of interest in Falanghina since the turn of the century, and there is now a movement to restore the reputation of this once-adored grape. Most Falanghina is grown in Campania, in southern Italy. The vines thrive in the porous volcanic soils and the warm Mediterranean climate. The berries are yellow-skinned and coated with a thin layer of protective wax.
This offering has bold aromas of honeysuckle, golden apple and herby Meyer lemon really jump from the glass. It’s crisp but creamy and light to medium-bodied in the mouth, with ripe pear, peach, and yellow and orange citrus flavors that really drive across your palate towards a crisp, clean, lightly salty, and fruit-filled finish. This wine can be paired with shellfish to pasta with garlic and lemon and even walnut and almonds or light chicken dishes.
