Campi Flegrei Falanghina


From two parcels between 90 and 200m above sea level, totaling 2.2 hectares; one is 7 years old, and the other is 40+ years old. Both sites face southeast and are trained guyot, and the vines are ungrafted.  

Harvested by hand in the beginning of October at yields of about 5,000kg/ha (27-30 hl/ha).  In the cellar, the grapes were destemmed and allowed to macerate on the skins for a few hours (in cooler vintages, maceration could last up to 3 days) after which they were softly pressed and fermented in stainless steel.  Malolactic is only partially completed.  The wine remains in tank for 10 months, 8 of which are on the lees.  The wine is lightly filtered and sulfured (about 10mg/l total added) and bottle aged at least a year before release.

"The sweetly scented 2018 Falanghina lifts from the glass with raw honey, almond paste and white flowers. This is textural, almost oily in feel, the ripe apple and nectarine accentuated by sweet spice. It finishes lightly grippy and with a citrus tinge, as residual acids the mouth watering for more. The 2018 is very pretty, yet holds nothing back."
