Vulcanico Falanghina 2018

IGT Basilicata

Volcanic wines are currently one of the current hot topics in the wine world, and the Vulcanico Falanghina is having its moment in the sun. The name “Vulcanico” highlights the fact that the grapes are harvested from vineyards near the base of Mount Vulture, an extinct volcano. The Vulcanico combines the freshness, balminess and delicacy of the Falanghina grape with the brightness and generosity that one would expect from a white wine from southern Italy.

James Suckling "Aromas of cooked lemons and sliced apples follow through to a full body with lemon-peel flavor and a hint of lavender. Fruity finish."
