Falanghina is a white wine grape probably originating in the Campania region of Italy, which is still its home. As a wine, Falanghina can have a slight pine scent, but is better known for its citrus-blossom aromas, in particular bitter orange. On the palate it typically shows classic apple and pear flavours, depending on where it is grown, with spicy or mineral notes. Though it is increasingly fashionable, Falanghina isn't yet planted much outside Campania. There is a little in Puglia and Abruzzo, but as yet no international production. Falanghina is often blended with other indigenous Italian varieties, or produced as a sweet passito wine, but varietal expressions of this interesting grape are becoming more popular.
