Introduction

  • Indigenous to Campania, Falanghina, or Falanghina Greco, is known for its quite outsized character. Many believe that––along with Aglianico––the grape may have been a basis for the Falernum wine so revered in ancient Roman texts.

Vineyard Profile

  • Vineyards: The grapes for this bottling were grown on 16-year-old vines planted to clay and chalk soils with south-southwest exposure about 450 feet above sea level. The vineyard site in Capaccio-Paestum is in the province of Salerno just a few miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Vinification

  • The grapes are softly crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for six months in tank before bottling.
