This aromatic and robust classic is made by a venerable Tuscan estate with a history that dates back to 1877. First produced in 1927, it pays homage to the Duke of Aosta, who crossed the Alps to taste the wine whose reputation was already well established in the 19th century. — 19 days ago

New grape, who dis? Falanghina Beneventana is dry, with high acidity and flavors that include floral, herbal and tropical fruit notes. Concentrated citrus fruit character on the nose, with notes of bitter orange, orange peel, tangerine and candied fruits. This ancient wine from southern Italy goes right along with my current dry white kick. #badandboozpod #blackwinelovers #winelovers #delectable #winereviews — 5 months ago
Wonderful cherry crumble, plum, and oaked vanilla. Nice notes of undergrowth to balance things out making sure things aren't too fruity cherry sweet. Nice mouth feel, a bit light / medium bodied and lacking some tannins. Overall, very enjoyable — 2 years ago
Purchased at the Grocery Outlet for $5.99.
That said, when we opened it yesterday it was totally not-descript. I wasn't even going to post it. Now, I am flabbergasted. We wasted it!
👃 lots of plummy raisins and caramel. So much fruit, it reminded me of a fruit compote.
👅 Pleasant leathery tannins, dry, subtly astringent. I never thought I'd b say "pleasant" and "leathery" in the same sentence.
