Vesevo Falanghina Beneventano IGT

2016

In a Nutshell

Ripe and fruity - a great summer drinker

Tasting Notes

Low temperature fermentation has retained the fresh, crisp and aromatic quality of the wine whilst still allowing its character to shine through. Perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes provide a backdrop to the full, ripe palate, and lift the finish. An elegant wine, with a lingering touch of honey.

Production Notes

The flavours obtained in the vineyard were then preserved in the winery. The must was chilled immediately and fermented at typical New Zealand temperatures (12-14°C) rather than the higher fermentation temperatures (18-20°C) that are so prevalent in Italy. The wine remained in stainless steel tank until bottling, with no oak and no malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring took place to impart more flavour and body to the wine.

Falanghina

Producer - Vigneti del Salento

This is the Puglia venture of the Farnese group (responsible for Gran Sasso, Vesevo and Tufarello ). The wines were made at two wineries in the province of Taranto on the western flank of Salento. The style of the wines – fresh whites, soft and generous reds – will be familiar to those who buy their other wines, as winemaker Filippo Baccalaro is the driving force behind this new label.
