Falanghina Beneventano IGP Terre Borboniche
The Falanghina grapes are grown in Campania, in southern Italy. There, the vines thrive in the porous volcanic soils around Mt. Vesuvius and the warm Mediterranean climate. The berries are yellow skinned and coated with a thin layer of protective wax. The Falanghina wine can have a slight pine scent, but is better known for its citrus blossom aromas, in particular bitter orange. On the palate, it typically shows classic apple and pear flavors, with spicy or mineral notes.
