Sommelier’s August Wine Pick


For those adventurous enough to try something outside of a glass of Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay, we suggest Falanghina!

As one of Italy’s great unsung white wines, it’s a brilliant all-rounder, with plenty of citrus fruit, faint notes of apple and pear, and the merest hint of nutty complexity. The balance of crispness and texture means this wine accompanies a huge range of foods, from roasted vegetables to fish and poultry.

Cantina del Taburno is owned by the agricultural Consortium of Benevento. The Consortium was established in 1901 and it had an extremely important role in the development of agriculture in the Sannio area. The winery was built in 1972 in the township of Foglianise and it is a point of reference for viticulture, due to its production philosophy and for its positive impact on the economy.

“I think my wine theme for the summer is going to be the unknown whites of the world. I find Falaghino to be fruity, reminiscent of pineapple and of ripe pear, with a touch of nuttiness you might find in a great Burgundy. My favorite pairing with this wine has been a duck and pear salad with a mango chutney. I definitely suggest two bottles, as the first one goes rather quickly!”- Gary E. Brown, CS – Restaurant Manager
