2010 Terredora di Paolo Falanghina Irpinia 12.5% $15

Falanghina is one of the most historic vines in Italy, probably brought to the coast of Campania by the Greeks a millenium ago. A wine with assertive minerality, Falanghina also typically shows citrus fruits and a slight bitter almond note on the finish.

Richly aromatic, with warm orchard fruit and slightly tropical citrus aromas accented by a nice sweet floral note. Moderately rich on entry, this shows fine tension between the fine base of sweet citrus fruit and sharper floral and mineral notes, gaining a hint of smoke and a touch of bitterness on the back end. This is refreshing without being overly acidic and shows good richness for a medium-bodied white wine. Great for white fish. 88 points
