2015 Falanghina del Sannio (Fontanavecchia, Azienda Agricola)

Azienda Agricola Fontanavecchia, Falanghina del Sannio, Taburno, Campania, Italy, 2015

{organic} 100% Falanghina

AROMATIC MANGO & PASSION FRUIT, EXPANSIVE YET BRIGHT

Libero Rillo and his father, Orazio, work their hillside vineyards of Benevento, rich in the fiercely volcanic soils that southern Italy's Campania is renowned for. This soil is most famous for yielding dense, powerful reds. Gaining ground in international acclaim, however, are the classically voluptuous yet balanced whites made from the region's indigenous grapes. Falanghina is perhaps the most fashionable of these and can wonderfully hold on to its acidity, which exists in perfect harmony with the intensely ripe, tropical fruit, resulting in a wine which is distinctly full-figured without being cloying. Falanghina? Bellissima!

Serving Suggestion:

Neapolitan pizza! Especially the traditional Margherita or ones topped with anchovies and garlic cloves.

2015 Piedirosso (Fontanavecchia, Azienda Agricola)

Azienda Agricola Fontanavecchia, Piedirosso, Taburno, Campania, Italy, 2015

{organic} 100% Piedirosso

BRIGHT CHERRY & BERRY, ROSES & DISTINCT SMOKINESS

One of the rarer single-varietal reds to come out of Campania, Piedirosso is more often used in blends where it softens the intensity of bolder varietals (typically Aglianico). This example from Fontanavecchia shows off bright, brambly berries, radiant red roses, black pepper, soft tannins, and a definitely distinct aroma of campfire ash - a direct result of the very volcanic soil. Mount Vesuvius is nearby, and looms large over the land and culture. If you've ever been confused by the term "minerality," here's a volcanic, solid stepping stone to understanding.

Serving Suggestion: Baked ziti. Grilled Italian sausage rolls w/ onions & roasted red & yellow bell peppers
