Irpinia Falanghina "Lila" Tenuta Cavalier Pepe
Falanghina is an old vine variety found in Campania where it gives its finest expression.
Its pale yellow colour has green reflections making it very appealing to the eye, but the nose of green apple and banana really gets the juices going.
On the palate it is fresh, well flavoured with a crunchy acidity to bring the palate to life.
Excellent with food but a joy as an aperitif too.

Falanghina as a grape variety dates back nearly 200 years and it is here in Campania where it grows to its finest and more especially in the soils surrounding Luogosano and Sant'Angelo all'Esca where the Tenuta Cavalier Pepe have their vines.
At an altitude of 350 meters, the vines stay fresh preserving all of the crisp acidity that brings the wine to life and also the fragrant fruit flavours.
Hand picked, the grape juice was fermented at low tempterature, once again preserving all of the glorious fruit flavours from the grapes.
