More about this wine from Campania, Italy
While you've likely never heard of it, the Falanghina grape is believed to have been in one of the most famous wines of ancient Rome, called Falernian. Planted on the slopes overlooking the Mediterranean, these grapes were grown in the salty and cool ocean breeze. This Campania region is located in the "shin" of Italy, just inland from Naples.

In this bottle you will find a wine that is surprisingly complex. The aroma of white flowers rising from your glass will make you think you're in for an explosion of perfume, but this gives way to a medium bodied and creamy juice that has a balancing minerality. It's the absolute perfect companion to softer cheeses, like Camembert or Brie.
