Capolino Preta Falanghina 2021 Italy Campania

$35.95

Capolino Preta Falanghina 2021

Ripe fruit with typical acidity of Falanghina but with complexity and structure. White fruits, apple and Mediterranean maquis well balanced with sapidity.

Falanghina is the main variety in Sannio and overall Campania. In my view has no frills: clean, straight, just stainless steel and minimum intervention in cellar. The variety gives generous crop and requires soils with water availability. For this reasons we cultivate Falanghina in our lower plot of land with volcanic sandy and calcareous soils. Pairing is perfect with traditional fish dishes or just as aperitif. The name “Preta” – dialect name for stone – evokes the soil characteristic of the vineyards where the grapes are cultivated.

Sannio is an area of Campania almost unknown to most people and off the typical tourist trails. Although located at just 45 miles from Naples, Sannio is quite different from the Campania stereotypes as to culture, climate and morphology: a rural land with vineyards and olive groves extending as far as the eye can see. Standing at the Apennines’ foot, it borders Campania, Apulia and Molise. Vines, imported from Greece, spread over the whole Magna Graecia area and therefore also in Campania. Wine produced in this area was the most widely drunk in Rome coming through Pompeii market until the fatal eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79, that obliterated Pompeii and put an end to its worldwide trades. After 2000 years, Sannio boasts about 10,000 hectares of vineyards and produces 1.2 million litres of wine, representing 45% of Campania’s overall production, equally divided between whites and reds.
