Fannia Falanghina del Molise DOC
Particularly pleasant and elegant, Fannia is made from a selection of the best Falanghina grapes of Campi Valerio winery and it came about from the desire to bring a grape variety, which historically belonged here, back to Sannio Pentro.
The grapes come from the area of Monteroduni (IS) and are usually harvested in mid-September. Vinification, fermentation and aging take place in stainless steel. Well-balanced and harmonious, this great white mirrors the high-profile technical ability that marks the estate’s passion and the outstanding personality of an exceptional wine.
Intense straw yellow colour. The nose is clean, intense and persistent. It imparts aromas of salt, musk, orange flowers, roses and limoncella apples. There is also a note of tropical fruit, pineapple, and undertones of vanilla. The finish speaks of minerals from rough rocks and gypsum. On the palate there is a precise and flavourful precision. A marked freshness and tasty finish. As it fades, an echo of tea leaves and walnut shells on a bed of tropical fruit lingers. We suggest serving ti at 10-12 °C.
FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS
Falanghina Fannia is an excellent wine to pair with cured meats, light starters of meat and rice, light cheese and fresh fish.
