Luca Maroni rated this 97. My first thought was who? ‘Among the best white wines tasted this year.’
After tasting this falanghina, I can tell you it’s not a 97...
But he’s right. It’s fantastic.
Pear. Honey. Perfect amount of acidity.

Lemon, green banana, lime pith, daisy, crushed rock dust, a sweet note: lemon verbena pudding. Lychee notes with lemon, lime and tangerine with amazing acid and mineral residuals that coalesce to lemon soaked pith. Round and lovely aura around tangential, edgy acid. Finesse. #tenutacavalierpepe #irpinafalanghina #falanghina #santavara #docg #italianwine #vinobianco #whitewine #campania #campagnia — a month ago
