Wine tasting notes

The Mastroberardino family is dedicated to making wine from ancient varieties that are indigenous to the region. Falanghina is the primary grape for the Sannio appellation and is named after falangae, a Latin term for supporting stakes. Many believe this grape to have been the basis of the legendary Falernian wine, the most prized wine of ancient Rome, due to its unique profile and fragrance. Pale lemon-green in color, aromas of ripe pineapples and citrus fruits are complemented by undertones of white flowers. On the palate, zesty acidity and persistent notes of honeysuckle and toasted almond make for a definite crowd-pleaser.
