I Pentri Monte Cigno Falanghina 2021
A wonderful exposition of the native Campanian Falanghina from the slopes of Monte Taburno. Peach mist and ripe orchard fruits with a tightly wound ginger and cracked minerals. Finishes with grapefruit and melon sorbet and a long and lingering sage-like herbal complexity. This makes you sit up and smile.
Fromthe younger vines of the estate, vinified in stainless steel with wild yeasts and very minimal intervention.
