A very well-balanced and versatile wine with a complex and individual character. At its best as an aperitif or with fish and seafood.
The historic Falanghina grape, which was first recorded almost two hundred years ago, in 1825, nowadays finds its epitome in the vineyards of the province of Benevento. The origin of the name is the latin word ‘phalange’, meaning ‘supported by stakes’. A selected vinification preserves its unique characteristics.
