Falanghina del Sannio 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Falanghina del Sannio aims to please with ripe apples, pears and sweet white smoke. It’s silky in feel mixing ripe orchard fruits with saline-minerality and a buzz of lime-infused acidity. This remains wonderfully energetic throughout and finishes crisp with a twang of sour citrus. $17.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2021) — 2 months ago

There's something undeniably awesome about taking face-ripping red wine grapes and turning them into rosé. Take the extra step and make it sparkling? Not even fair. This Spumante (fully sparkling) Aglianco still has a rich, full body and great texture but lighter and fresher than its still, red counterpart. No face-ripping tannins but lots of complexity. Brioche, strawberry shortcake, berries and cream!

Taburno Falanghina del Sannio 2014

Gravel and lemon rind on the nose. Honey, green apple, green pear, mineral, lemon, and grapefruit on the palate. Slight citrus rind/seed astringency. A good bit of alcohol for a white. There's something kind of herbal/vegetal to it, but I can't put my finger on it. Good, medium-long finish. — 6 years ago

Vigna Cataratte Riserva Taburno Aglianico

1999 vintage and nearly perfect. Complex dried fruit, mint, and spice on nose. Sweet and supple, but still fresh on palate, finishing blue cheesy! Perfect for a 10 degree night in Asheville. — 7 years ago
