Falanghina [FA-lan-GHEE-nah]

A very old varietal grown today on the shores of Campania, south of the city of Naples in southern Italy. Thought to be a key component in the ancient wine Falernum, today Falanghina is used to make fresh and lively white wines. Falanghina is typically rich for a white and just a bit decadent. Aromas and flavors of green apples, citrus fruits, ripe melon and stone fruits on the palate are common.
