Fresh wine, rich of flower and mediterranean flavours. It’s balanced at taste, light and pleasing.
Falanghina is an ancient Italian white-wine grape, reportedly of Greek origin. It is also said that Falanghina is the grape variety behind Falernian, the most famous wine of Roman antiquity and the inspiration for Falerno del Massico. It is an ancient grape variety which may have provided a basis for the classical Falernian wine, and has considerable character.
It is cultivated on the coast of Campania north of Naples, and frequently consumed in southern Italy along with seafood. The name for the wine appears to derive from the Latin falangae, or stakes for supporting the grapes in a vineyard. In November 2014 Falanghina was approved as a recognized varietal by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau for use in the United States.
The company Vitis Aurunca was born from the passion of a group of agronomist and farmers to rediscover the peculiarities of grapes grown by ancient Romans in regions of Campania and Lazio.
The proximity to the Tyrrhenian Sea, which influence the local microclimate, and the volcanic soil, contribute to the special peculiarities of wine.
