Uncommon in the US, this wine is fresh and fruity with marked notes of citrus, tropical fruits, peach, banana and white flowers. The color is straw yellow with greenish reflections. Pairs well with appetizers and all fish dishes, and especially Neopolitan pizza!
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.
The name Falanghina probably derives from the use of the poles called "falange" which have been used since ancient times to support the vines. Despite having written evidence only from the mid-nineteenth century, experts argue that it is a contemporary vine compared to Fiano and Greco, which date back to the first century BC.
