Falanghina del Molise DOP

 Straw yellow, in which golden flares shine. The olfactory framework immediately release the bouquet, well articulated, identifying the falanghina: ripe tropical fruit, pineapple, Canary melon with a distinct floral note of fragrant chamomile and a final close to cotton candy. To the mouth, this wine seduces, confirming the hints of tropical fruit, its freshness perfectly balances of its alcoholic soul. If we have the patience to let the wine reach warmer temperatures, we can discover the note of a delicious liqueur with saffron, elegant homage of its fermentation in barrique.
