"Lively acidity frames open-knit flavors of Asian pear, stone and star fruit in this light-bodied, lithe white. Tangy, lingering finish. Drink now. 8,333 cases made. -AN " (WS)

"Bright straw-yellow. Menthol, ripe apple, botanical herbs and flowers on the inviting nose. Rich and dense with a multilayered quality. Finishes long, surprisingly tactile, complex and mouth-filling. Best Falanghina wine from Terredora in years, or at least that I have memory of." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Occupying a sort of middle ground between Greco and Fiano, literally and figuratively, is Falanghina. It borrows some of the piney fragrance of Fiano and some of the juiciness of Greco to create a refreshing, mostly coastal white. Unlike Fiano and Greco, Falanghina is not usually showcased on its own; however, when done on its own, it proves to be a versatile and fresh white wine.

Tasting Notes:
Pale yellow

Rich and intense aroma of fruit with hints of apple, pineapple, quince and pear

Fresh and clean in the mouth with excellent acidity, good structure

Versatile enough to serve for the whole meal; ideal with appetizers, soups
