Great transitional wines for the season we've been waiting for!

Fiano or Falanghina

The competing whites of southern Italy.

This is a bit of a stretch, but you will always be confused by Fiano and Falanghina until you try them side by side. Now is the perfect time to do so!

Being in the heart of Italy’s wine country, Campania seems like an odd place for classic white wines. Regardless, both Fiano, with its rich texture and slightly herbal aromas, and Falanghina, with more body, structure and tropical fruit notes, absolutely thrive there. These are great wines for spring. They are rich yet refreshing and very food-friendly.

Two to try:

2010 Mastroberardino Falanghina

2009 Romano Clelia Fiano di Avellino

    I love the arrival of spring too and I think you are so right, you have to be prepared. A moment too late and you will be in the scorching summer. I am very interested in your selection, I will tell you how I celebrated Springtime last year was by spending Easter in the South of Burgundy and we discovered a marvelous producer called Jean-Pierre Michel a stone's throw from where we were staying, we loved his Viré Clessé "Terroirs de Quintaine", and his Macon Village just a touch greener that was such a perfect pre-dinner drink.

  • Why not a Muscadet to your shellfish, a Gruener Veltliner to your trout or a Sauvignon Blanc to your asparagus -- and a semisweet Riesling from Mosel or Rhine in the golden sunlight of May!!
