Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicious and bright. White grapefruit citrus, kiwi skin, pears, salty touches of olives. Flavours show salt driven citrus peels, yellow berries, sandy minerals and crisp splashes of sea. Acidity is high and perfectly well integrated into the light body and finish. A perfect partner for shrimp and scallop ceviche and medium bodied cheeses. 91 points - tasted November 2018
Jennifer Carter rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A nice fresh aroma of citrus, lime and grapefruit. This wine is not light and watery, it has a great medium bodied weight. A saltiness to the palate helps you feel like you are sitting by the ocean in Italy drinking this with your fresh seafood. Falanghina is an under rated grape that should be around more!
Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Full aromas of almonds and citrus with a touch of honey. A crisper white but with bigger flavours than many higher acid whites. Great length as the flavours stick around. Drink now.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Flinty (scratched match) aromas with major lime, grapefruit, and grassy flavours. A mouthwatering light-bodied aperitif perfect for pairing with salty nibbles. Tasted Nov. '18 by @sommsosa
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lemon, lemon, lemon! Fresh cut herb (dill, tarragon) and salinity (green olive) and a bit of bitter pith. would be a good sushi wine. Very zesty/savoury.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nose: Pineapple, grapefruit citrus punch, minerals
Palate: more grapefuit, lime, lemon peel, smoky minerality, medium body, dry finish
Pair with: seafood, white fish & poultry & pork dishes
From the Campania wine region, Mastroberardino 2016 Falanghina Del Sannio is floral on the nose with ripe stonefruit, lime zest and tropical fruit notes on the palate. This is a dry white wine that would do well with a seafood pizza and clam vongole. The Mastroberardino family are masters of making wine with indigenous and ancient grape varieties such as this zesty white wine made from 100% Falanghina. - Community Wine Reviews
