Falanghina Beneventano IGP Frizzante 11.5%
Farming of the grapes: Obtained from the Falanghina grape, grown in calcareous-clay soils at an altitude between 150 and 350 m.a.s.l. Located on the slopes of the Regional Park of Taburno-Camposauro, the breeding system is espalier with a yield of 90 hectares and an average vine age of 15 years. The harvest takes place in September.
Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand slightly before ripeness and transferred to the winery in boxes. There follows the soft pressing of the whole grape. The fermentation begins in stainless steel tanks for about 15-20 days in cold refinement on fine lees. The base wine obtained is refermented in an autoclave according to the Martinotti method, where it is refined for about 2 months.
Please note: This bottle is extra special to us as our supplier is currently selling over 1 million bottles a year to California alone, in their words it has “taken America by storm.”
