Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely perfumey herbal/floral white flowers on nose. Repeated on the palate with peach and ripe pear. No oak used, so optimal fruit flavours show. Ripe white fruit finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

What's in a name? Flowers. From the hillsides of Ponte, Sannio in Campania in Southern Italy comes this pretty floral dominant white wine. Rose petals, white blossoms, tree fruit, sweet spices, saline. The acidity is medium(-) and body is light a decent length on a slightly bitter finish. Perhaps raw almond? Wine and roses...perfect Valentine wine while you eat your spicy Asian food.
Tasted: February 2015
Stephen Beaumont CSW CWE rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Enjoyed at a recent wine and cheese event put on at l'Alliance Francaise in Toronto, it was interesting to taste Italian wines in a distinctly Francophile environment!

The Falanghina grape is at its best in the Campania region, north of Naples. It's hot down there and yet this wine has refreshing levels of acidity and, true to its name, is floral and perfumed. The mouth feel is lush and it is medium-dry with a long finish.

We drank it with a triple cream cheese called Riopelle de l'Isle from l'Ile-aux-Grues, east of Quebec. It was a great pairing and the structure of the wine married well with the creaminess of the cheese. A well made wine, would also be good with seafood and great with buttery lobster! Drink now.
This floral Italian white wine will surprise and delight you. The 2012 vintage of the Falanghina del Taburno Flora is medium-bodied and dry. - Community Wine Reviews
