Vigna Astroni

Falanghina Campi Flegrei cru

Protected Designation of Origin

Vigna Astroni, Falanghina of Campi Flegrei Cru, was born from our vineyard, which grows on the outer slopes of the Astroni Crater. The grapes come from a single terraced vineyard of 1.5 hectares, which is currently under conversion to organic. The wine is bottled after 8 months of aging in stainless steel tanks without refrigeration and gentle filtration. The wine may contain some sediments on the bottom of the bottle.

Organoleptic characteristics

A deep straw yellow color. Mineral notes combine with elegant toasted sweet almond and light herbaceous scents. Sapidity is the first impact noted during tasting which is then followed by a lively acidity. These components interact well with the smoothness of the wine.

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.
