Produced with grapes from Ponte, Apice, Torrecuso, Bonea and Montesarchio areas. The wine has a pale straw-yellow colour with greenish shimmer. The aroma is intense and persistent. Distinct notes of tiny white flowers and fruit, from the local “limongella” apple to tropical lime. A balanced, fresh taste with a clean finish.

Lively white fruits & crisp pear on the nose, beautifully well-rounded composition on the mid-palate, with a delightfully balanced and lingering finish which brings ya right back to the nose. It's a round-tripper. For the price, to me, it's in a league nearly on its own.
This is a very nice Italian white with minerals and peach flavors. It goes well with light pastas and antipasto.
Very drinkable with food or alone. Not as interesting as their Greco di tufo, but more reliable.
While I prefer the 2005, this is a nice, solid effort from a good producer. What I certainly enjoy about this bottle is that its an exceptional value.
External Reviews for Falanghina
Falanghina 2009 - Recommended, Good Housekeeping/ Budget Italians
Falanghina 2008 - Critics Silver, 2010 Critics Challenge/ Bright, fruity aroma, good texture, length.
Falanghina 2009 - 4 stars, Restaurant Wine/ The Falanghina is supple and full bodied, with intense fruitiness (peach, lemon peel, pear, and honeysuckle), good balance, and a long finish. Excellent quality and value.
Lemons, melon, minerals and honey with a hint of banana. Lively acidity and a long ripe finish.
Falanghina 2011 - 87 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This bright Falanghina offers citrus, green apple, honey and melon aromas, with a fresh, zesty finish. Pair this with spaghetti alle vongole.
This classically styled Falanghina offers attractive aromas of white fruit, banana oil and toasted almonds. Fresh and full, good body and texture, flavors follow the nose with mouth-watering acidity to provide texture. One of the best values of the year. It's intented for immediate enjoyment, and there's no reason not to drink it now; however, all three Campania white varieties can reward careful cellaring with increased richness and complexity, so you needn't hesitate to age it for five years or more, assuming good cellar conditions.(Wine Lover's Page)
Falanghina 2008/ Light yellow with aromas of apples and white flowers. Medium-bodied with good concentration. Tart acidity, good varietal character.
