A white wine with a delicate nose, with hints of broom, whilst it is full-bodied, fresh and pleasant on the palate. It has good acidity and fine, delicate, fruity notes. It has a broad and pleasantly bitter aftertaste that recalls the pomegranate. It can be drunk with grilled or fried fish, with pasta dishes with seafood or vegetable and tomato sauces, it happily accompanies the most traditional recipes from the Campania region.

The ancient heritage of its vineyards and a great respect for tradition hold the key to Campania’s success in the world of wine. Instead of seeking out international markets by planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, Campania’s winemakers have stayed true to their proud heritage of indigenous grapes that best reflect Campania’s terroir.
Campania’s wines were first enjoyed by the Romans whose proud tradition of producing Falernian from Aglianico grapes around Naples was reflected in other parts of the region. They also produced a white wine that is thought to be related to the modern Falanghina. Wines made around Vesuvius and Avellino were similarly revered. Even today, as improvements in both the vineyard and the winery have influenced the style of wine produced here, there is still a great respect for tradition reflected in the use of native grapes that are largely unknown in other parts of the world.
