With its pleasant and focused taste, the Irpinia Falanghina I.G.P wine brings together full-bodiness and a refined aromatic quality. Its fruity scent of pear is enriched by an almost floral aftertaste and delicious notes of slightly bitter almond.

Our Irpinia Falanghina I.G.P wine is fermented in stainless steel vats, has a alcohol content of 12,5% and it’s ideally served at 10-12°C.

Its dry and fresh flavor make it an excellent choice to go with fish and white meat courses, as well as desserts.

Origins

According to the tradition, the Irpinia Falanghina I.G.P wine originates from the ancient “Falerno bianco” vine variety, that can only be found in Campania.

This exclusive local origins of the Falanghina over the years have lead winemakers from other regions to claim its paternity. This attempt, that became common especially in the 90’s, has been promptly opposed by the winemakers in Irpinia.
