We tasted seven white wines from Campania and Sicily, all single grape varietals, 2009-2012. Clear standout of the group, our consensus #1!

Tropical. Ripe and boozy but super tasty. Nice minerality and acidity hides behind the intense pineapple and 14.5% alc.
Certainly not insipid. Delicious with lamb over rice.

Crazy value at $22. Apricots, honey, marzipan, grapefruit.

I’ve had great bottles of I Pentri, but this was a failed cellaring experiment.

2013 Vintage. Lovely wine, by far the best Falanghina I've tried this year. Loaded with ripe apricots, baked peaches and honey aromas. Zippy acidity. Complete package. Soon to be btg at Corkbuzz Charlotte.

2010 is a large but delicious wine. Falanghina has the right to traverse 13.5% in my book--this wine case in point at 14.5% is still quite lovely and doesn't feel hot. Bergamot, lemon, honey, tarragon a bit. Candied orange, but never gets too big. Flirts with the roof.

Glows like a golden ale and smells like apricot green tea and smoked seaweed. Tastes like sour peaches and yellow plums. Big fruity body with some grip and tannin.

Stone fruits on the nose. Beautiful crisp acidity and nice minerality. Great!
