NOTE : You need a mix of any 6 bottles to checkout - we ship in multiples of 6 bottles with a 6 bottle minimum.
Falanghina can be considered a semi-aromatic variety. This example shows its intense and luscious fruit aromas as well as its balanced acidity providing length and freshness on the palate. The wine is medium-bodied, well balanced, with an intense finish.
Vesevo is situated in the Irpinian hills of Campania. Known as the ‘Switzerland of the South’, this is now one of Italy’s most exciting wine producing areas. The vineyards are situated from 450 to 700 metres above sea level and are subject to a constant cool breeze that blows off the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this same breeze has blown volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius inland, to give the soil here a poor, volcanic character.
This white is fermented at lower ‘New Zealand-esque’ temperatures (13 – 14°C), resulting in much purer flavours being captured. The Falanghina shows delicate perfumes of white flowers with mineral notes to complement the full, ripe palate.
The fruit comes from vineyards in the region of Benevento located at 400-600 metres above sea level providing with perfect sun exposure and mitigating altitude. The soil is composed of three different elements: volcanic deposits, clay and limestone. These aspects are the perfect ingredients to create a wonderful combination of freshness, flavours and bright acidity.
