Terredora Di Paolo Falanghina Irpinia 2012

Falanghina is one of the oldest cultivated grape varieties in Italy. It thrives in the Irpinian Hills of Campania in southern Italy and produces vibrant, easy drinking wines with distinctive apple, orange peel and vanilla characteristics that compliment a wide variety of dishes. Lucio Mastroberardino founded Terradora di Paolo in 1994 when he and his brother split the holdings of the family estate. Terradora di Paolo consists of 200 hectares of vineyards, making it one of the largest wineries not just in Campania, but all of southern Italy. Lucio’s focus has always been on rediscovering and restoring the ancient and indigenous varietals of Campania, such as Aglianico, Fiano, Greco and Falanghina.

Deep straw yellow in colour, with aromas of citrus and wet river stones. Apple, pineapple and lemon zest flavours abounded in the medium body whilst rich honey notes melted into a bitter almond finish. Well structured with a welcomed bright acidity, this is a fantastic glass that can be paired with a wide variety of pasta and seafood dishes, or enjoyed on its own.
