The soft pressing takes place through the use of a pneumatic press, the alcoholic fermentation entirely carried out in steel fermenters using selected leavened products at a temperature of 14-16 °C for 15 days. Malolactic fermentation is not carried out and refinement takes place in the bottle for many months.
The notes of our winemaker Riccardo Cotarella
“Falanghina is a vine not very well understood in the past, but thanks to climate changes it has exploded in all its flavours , in all its aromas, in all its grandeur. It is a vine that can be recognized by its bouquet, without putting your nose in the glass. It is extremely rich and lively, even from a meter away it remains deep and dynamic.
Resilience – Falanghina del Beneventano IGT is a Falanghina released on the market a year later, logically Falanghina maintains, beyond what was thought, at least this one from Donnachiara , a unique aging potential. I would say that it is among the white wines that age best , I had the opportunity to taste 7 or 8 year old Falanghina wines and I must say that it is an incredible surprise.
In some ways Falanghina can be compared, not so much in aromas and characteristics, but in aging potential, to the classic Verdicchio di Jesi.
It is a complex, rich, full-bodied wine , which we left to refine on the fine lees and which aged in the bottle for a year. It pairs perfectly with any meal, but prefer first courses, starters, fish rather than pasta without tomatoes, it is an excellent wine”
