Terredora has been a key player in Campania’s viticultural renaissance for the past 20 years. After World War II, Walter Mastroberardino of the iconic winemaking family, a resolute southern man who is now head of Terradora, began to show his wines around Italy. He wanted to show the rest of Italy that Campania could produce outstanding wines thanks to region’s volcanic soils and sunshine. In 1994 the Terredora winery was founded, nestled in the enchanting landscape of Serra in Montefusco, in Avellino province, which is the most hilly and mountainous among the 5 districts of Campania.
This Falanghina is one of Campania’s most ancient grapes. The name likely derived from the Latin, phalangae, meaning stake, referencing the ancient method of training the vines on stakes for support.
Fragrant flowers, orchard fruit, citrus, peach and almond. The palate is brisk with tree fruit, lemon and mineral notes.
Falanghina grapes from the Iripinia district around the town of Avellino, are harvested in the second half of October. The must is settled and then fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeasts. The wine is aged on its lees in stainless steel but sees no oak.
