Winemaker 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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Falanghina del Sannio is wonderfully alive and vibrant. Crushed rocks, white stone fruits and jasmine literally jump from the glass, all underpinned by saline notes that give the wine its sense of energy.

Cantina del Taburno, Italy
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.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular, complex and age-worthy wines. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.

Though to be an ancient transplant from Greece, the grape takes its name from the Greek word, phalanga, meaning stake or pole, in reference to the Greek method of training vines to single stakes. Thriving throughout Campania, it plays a key role in many regional blends and grows widely from the north in Falerno del Massico DOC zone to Naples where, along the slopes on Mount Vesuvius, local grapes called Verdeca, Coda di Volpe and Greco take well to it’s addition. On the Amalfi Coast, it is added to Biancolella as well as Greco. Around Avellino, it can be made into single varietal versions, like its compatriots: Fiano and Greco.

Falanghina produces attractive and unoaked wines with an alluring piney resin and citrus blossom fragrance, which are juicy and refreshing on the palate. Try it with a classic Caprésé salad of mozzarella, heirloom tomato and fresh basil.
