Organoleptic characteristics

A clear deep golden yellow color. A complex intense and persistent nose with a generous bouquet that slowly rises from the glass. Floral scents prevail followed by those of mature fruits such as apricots and yellow peaches. Pleasant citrus notes with a lightly spicy finish. Freshness, structure and persistence are noted in the mouth as well as the typical minerality and sapidity; almost tending towards salty.

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.
