2020 Campi Valerio “Fannia” Falanghina del Molise, Molise, Italy
ABOUT THIS WINE
This surprising Falanghina is not solely focused on the fruit, but on its steepness and freshness. The color is appealing, nose is delicate and alluring, and varies from complex white citrus fruit and wild flowers, to a slightly salty caper finish. This wine is overflowing with freshness and aromas of crisp green apple with a long, pleasing finish. Enjoy it at its best paired with fish dishes; a revelation paired with Krystale oysters.
Coming from Guyot-trained Falanghina vines which are cultivated in softer clay soils at an altitude on 560 meters. Harvest came in mid-September and vinification and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel.
