Falanghina Campi Flegrei

Protected Designation of Origin

It has been said that this variety entered unmistakable of this grape variety into Italy from the port of Cuma, an ancient colony founded in 700 BC at the foot of the Phlegrean Fields. The Greeks cultivated their vines by leaving them to crawl on the ground. In Italy, however, this type of training system produced moldy grapes. So the settlers were forced to look for an alternative. This was how the first winemakers understood that by lifting the vines off the ground and attaching them to wooden poles, in Latin phalangae, they avoided the onset of botrytis. From these support systems Vinum Album Phalanginum was born, ancestor to our Falanghina.

Falanghina grape

Falanghina grape

La Falanghina deriva probabilmente da antichi ceppi greco-balcanici e sembra dovere il suo nome al suo portamento espanso, per cui tradizionalmente veniva legata a pali di sostegno detti "falanga", da cui Falanghina, ossia "vite sorretta da pali".
Il vitigno si presenta con grappoli di medie dimensioni, lunghi e compatti a forma cilindrica e alati su un lato. I chicchi hanno dimensioni medie, a forma sferica con concentrazioni medie di pruina sulle bucce spesse con colori grigi a riflessi gialli. È abbastanza vigoroso, con rese nella media, costanti, e vendemmie che iniziano a partire dalla terza settimana di settembre.
