Winemaker's Notes:

Crisp and fruity, this is an absolutely delightful wine! The Falanghina grape can be tasted in perfect purity, with notes of almond blossom, lemon, and fresh nectarine. Perfect for light meals, appetizers, and just by the glass, this is a wine that will appeal to everyone.
My Notes:

About Cantina del Taburno:

From the hills comes a good share of Campania's best wines and among theese stands up the Taburno winery at 350 mt. above sea level. Recently enlarged and modernized, the Taburno winery has become a focal point for the grape growers of the D.O.C. area, for its wine production and promotion.

Quality is for the Taburno winery is a result of giving its members the results of the research of its laboratories. The best varieties are chosen, those that better adapt to the soil to the climate, to the enological requirements, to the market demands. The locally grown grapes are farmed on hills mostly made up of volcanic and chalky soils. But good grapes alone are not in themselves a guarantee of high quality wine. That rests with the never ending striving for excellence by the winemakers of Taburno. The grape selection, soft grape crushing and pressing, fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks are done carefully to insure excellence from start to finish.

The ageing cellars, built under ground ensuring constant temperatures contain large oak casks and barriques of French oak.

Taburno has has committed it self to combine tradition and modern technology to produce great wines.
