Falanghina is thought to be long-aged Falernum, the most famous wine in ancient Rome - delicate tropical notes with a long balance palate

Bisceglia Winery was founded in 2001 by Mario Bisceglia. The goal is to value the peculiarities of the territory of volcanic origin and to produce world class wines made with both indigenous and international varietals grown in Southern Italy. Volcanic origin makes the difference for obtaining the best quality of Aglianico del Vulture DOC. The Estate is comprised of forty hectares of vines in the heart of the Aglianico DOC appellation, which include the local varieties Aglianico and Moscato and as well as a selection of international vine varieties (Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay). Moreover, Bisceglia produces native grapes from Campania Region (Falanghina IGT Benventano) and Puglia Region (Primitivo IGT). The climate is Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers, helping grape colour and polyphenolic complexity.

Tasting Note: Floral hints of honeysuckle, jasmine, and a touch of pineapple, kiwi and pear. Harmonious, soft and lingering on the palate, plus a refreshing acidity on the finish.
