Falanghina del Sannio DOP 2019


Falanghina is one of Campania’s oldest grape varieties, but only recently returned to popularity. Its name is thought to come from the phalanxes (falangae in Latin) of poles used to support the vines. It’s now one of Campania’s signature varieties and Mount Taburno is one of the best areas for it.
