By the winemaker’s own definition, Vicus Falanghina is simple and personal -- it reflects the rich volcanic soils typical to the hillside vineyards around Benevento. It is a refreshing wine with citrus-blossom aromas. On the palate it typically shows classic apple and pear flavors with spicy or mineral notes.


VARIETAL NOTES

Falanghina is purported to be the grape variety behind Falerni
an, the most famous wine of Roman antiquity and the inspiration for Falerno del Massico. Increased interest in Falanghina during the last decade has fueled a movement to restore the reputation of this once-venerated grape.
Most Falanghina is grown in Campania, in southern Italy. The
vines thrive in the porous volcanic soils and the warm Mediterranean climate. The berries are yellow skinned and coated with a thin layer of protective wax.


FOOD PAIRING

Versatility is the hallmark of Falanghina. It is perfectly enjoy
-
able as a aperitif or paired with ceviche or crudite. Main course

pairings range from broiled or grilled fish to chicken, crab or

shrimp.
