Falanghina Wine

for this region?

Falanghina, also called Falanghina Greco, is a variety of wine grape, Vitis vinifera, used for white wines. It is an ancient grape variety which may have provided a basis for the classical Falernian wine, and has considerable character. It is cultivated on the coast of Campania north of Naples, and frequently consumed in southern Italy along with seafood. The name for the wine appears to derive from the Latin falangae, or stakes for supporting the grapes in a vineyard.

  • Falanghina Irpinia Terredora di Paolo 2010


    $14 . 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... Read More
