Vesevo (Italy) 2020 Falanghina
Vesevo Beneventano Falanghina, has perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes provide a backdrop to the full, ripe palate and lift the finish, an elegant wine, with a touch of honey on the finish.
Vesevo in the Irpinian hills of Campania. Along with a clutch of other indigenous grapes, Falanghina has championed.
Besides geography – the climate, the rich, minerally volcanic soil around Vesuvius – falanghina owes its survival and unique characters too.
Evolves beautifully in the glass, moving more into tropical fruit flavours and honeyed characters.
Hugely appealing but often under appreciated Italian white. If you like Pinot Gris or Chardonnay this might just push your buttons!
