Italy / Campania / Falanghina del Sannio DOC

White of Falanghina

One 750ml bottle (12 bottles make a full case)

"Among the great variety of interesting white grape varieties grown in Campania are two different cultivars with the name Falanghina; Falanghina Flegrea from the Campi Flegrei (near Naples), and Falanghina Beneventana, from around Benevento, to the north-east of Naples. Both of these varieties can make delicious, distinctive wines, but the ‘cut’ and minerality of the Beneventana is particularly mouthwatering. Alexia produces the Benevento type of Falanghina. As is the often the case here in Campania, the wines don’t taste like they’re from a warm southern climate, in that they have excellent bright acidity and a strong mineral character. I found it to have citrus and herbal notes, along with the minerality Jeremy mentions. It’s a delicious, bright and flavorful white wine; one of Campania’s classic whites." -Oliver McCrum
