Denominazione di Origine Protetta /// Bianco
Falanghina, the ancient Romans’ “vinum album Phalanginum,” makes the monovarietal Falerno del Massico Bianco. Straw yellow, its elegant, generous bouquet offers well-ripened fruit, including bananas, yellow peach, Williams’s pear, confectioner’s cream, broom and rose blossoms, and delicate notes of sage and vanilla. The palate, velvety, rich, and long-lasting, displays remarkable refinement and personality.
