Pronounced:  Fa-lahn GEE nah

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.

The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII.  Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania's ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.
