CANTINE FALIESI "Starza" Falanghina IGT
Essence of orange peel and Anju pear permeate the nose and the palate along with fresh acitdity and a noticeable element of minerality thanks in large part to the volcanic soils of the area.
Falanghina \fah lahn GHEE nah\
Another ancient varietal grown almost exclusively in the Campania region, the vines thrive in the porous volcanic soils around Mount Vesuvius and the warm Mediterranean climate. Falanghina wines are well structured, full-bodied and memorable thanks to the distinct and aromatic nose resembling orange peel and fresh kumquats. The name for the wine appears to derive from the Latin falangae, or stakes for supporting the grapes in a vineyard.
