2018 Fonzone Falanghina Irpinia DOC
This wine is made with 100% Falanghina grapes coming from vineyard of Tenuta Fonzone in Paternopoli located on sandy – clay soils at 380m above sea level, near the creek Ifalco. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully transported to the winery in small perfored boxes, then they are selected and softly pressed. The fermentation is carried out at low temperature and lasts for about a month. The wine is aged in stainless steel for five months, with periodical bâtonnage. Tasting Notes: The color is pale yellow crystalline, with greenish reflections. The nose stand out clearly elegant fruit aromas, recalling green apple and white melon, with a slight accent of citrus; delicate mentholated and talc notes. The palate is dry and shows a typical freshness, which is accompanied by a good body.
