Appellation: Sannio Falanghina DOC
Varietals: 100% Falanghina
Color: Straw yellow that contains brilliant green reflections
Aroma: Floral notes, like white blossoms, and delicate apple and pear on the nose
Taste: A medium intensity mouthfeel upon entry, crisp minerality, with hints of spice, light almond and a slightly bitter orange peel character. The pretty floral notes and soft fruit flavors follow all the way through the finish in perfect balance with the mouthwatering acidity.
Fermentation: Grape bunches are hand-harvested into 18 kilo crates during the latter half of September. The crates are then transported in refrigerated trucks (50º F) to the winery. Bunches are individually selected and soft-pressed followed by cold settling at 57˚F for 24-48 hours. The juice is cold-fermented in stainless steel vats between 61 – 64˚F and does not undergo malolactic fermentation.
Aging: 3 months in stainless steel on the lees with an additional month in bottle prior to release.
