2014 CANTINA DEL TABURNO FALANGHINACantina Taburno
Producer: Cantina del Taburno
Region: Benevento, Campania
Zone: DOC of Falanghina del Taburno
Situated next to the mountain of Taburno, Cantina del Taburno sits at an average elevation of 300m above sea level. Warm days and cool nights, coupled with the elevation, mean Cantina del Taburno produces native varieties (like Falanghina, Fiano and Aglianico) with brilliant results. Somehow this large organisation continues to produce wines with a sense of place, each of the varieties with their own trademark left by the Campania countryside
Well made Falanghina like this, from best, higher vineyards is able to show all its subtle fruits of peach and apple, honeysuckle and herbs, with a touch of tight minerality – usually associated with far northern wines. A full, quite lush and nicely zippy palate completes a very versatile food white.
Growing System: Guyot
