Cantina del Taburno Falanghina del Sannio 2011
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.
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.
Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines...
Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.
In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
