Profile

Smell

Delicate and aromatic, with notes of lime, pear, and yellow apple, along with hints of tart pineapple and white flowers. As it warms up in the glass, riper aromas of peach and apricot emerge, but the overall impression is of bright citrus and orchard fruit.

Taste

Medium-bodied on the palate, with great concentration and intensity. Flavours echo the nose, with lime, lemon curd, and a distinct mineral note that persists through the long, energetic finish. The acidity is a perfect match to the wine's weight, and it's delicious on its own, but this is a fantastic food wine as well.

Pairing

Embrace the local custom of enjoying a glass with appetizers before a meal, or pair with fresh shellfish or poached halibut served with charred lemon and asparagus.

Aromas and Flavours

Lemon / Lime

Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.

Apple

From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.

Pear

A romantic picnic in the orchard, with your partner and their favourite white wine.

Pineapple

The sweet aroma of the tropics wafting from your glass - you can almost hear the waves crashing.

Floral

You just received a bouquet from a secret admirer and the smell is intoxicating.

Description

Urciuolo Vini was founded in 1996, by brothers and Irpinia natives Ciro and Antonello Urciuolo. It was their father's lifelong dream for the family to own a winery, and it came to fruition in 1992 when the brothers planted just 3 hectares of Fiano in Forino. These first vines were planted to an area that was not intentionally destined for vineyards, but instead was planted to hazelnuts. The story of Ciro and Antonello's winery is one of a commitment and passion to develop their region of Puglia and re-define convention.

Falanghina - the name derives from “falanga,” the poles used to support the vine's vigorous growth - is thought to be of ancient Greek origin, but it thrives in Campania. The region's soils contribute a wonderful and persistent acidity to the wines, making them perfect aperitif whites for casual, everyday enjoyment. We were lucky enough to be joined by Ciro for a tasting of this delicious wine - check out the video on our YouTube channel! Serve this Falanghina at about 6 C, and enjoy over the next two years.
