2019 Falanghina Di Sannio, Fremondo
Ready for despatch
Our new Falanghina from Campania sold out on release in June. However, I have just managed to secure another shipment with 20 cases which is here and ready for despatch. This fantastic wine is perfect for everyday drinking, and as Esme says "Falanghina is in my view one of Italy’s white wine unsung heroes".
At £9.45, it’s a bit of a push to think of a more appealing everyday drinking white than this - such is its warmth, charm, generosity and zingy freshness. Delicious.
Falanghina is a very ancient grape, much prized by the ancient Romans and known as Falernian wine. It is proving particularly popular, with its luscious tropical fruit enhancing a Gavi-ish minerality and crispness of style. Southern Italy is undoubtedly producing some of the most attractive and interesting whites around with Falanghina being our favourite this summer.
For a wine from sunny Southern Italy, this has a real zip and aromatic, perfumed style. Tangy and citrus-fresh with a crisp, almost saline character quite resemblant of a Gavi, but with an extra layer of ripe, luscious fruit. Expressive and very drinkable, and a great partner for the best seafood you can track down.
David Campbell's Review - "Falanghina from the rich soils of Campania, the lovely land around Naples, is a very ancient grape that probably provided Falernian wine, much loved by the ancient Romans. I immediately loved this modern example."
Esme Johnstone's Review - "Falanghina is in my view one of Italys white wine unsung heroes. This excellent example has both body and depth of flavour that make it the perfect match with pasta."
