WTN: 2002 Cantine Farro Campi Flegrei Falanghina

2002 Cantine Farro Campi Flegrei Falanghina – A pretty greenish-golden color. Nose of mineral, wet stone, and lemon. Flavors also show plenty of minerals in the forefront, along with some lemon, lime, and earthy spice. Good acidity and length, with a nice viscosity in the mouth, and a finish that shows some grassy elements to accompany the mineral qualities. A great summer white for $15, and very refreshing on a freakishly hot 95 degree day in Minnesota!

Hi Jean,

As you may know, I've raved about this wine in the past (prior to my eGullet days). This is a great summer quaffer, as you mention, but it also a terrific wine with simply grilled lighter fish and shellfish. Great with soft-shelled crab! And you've reminded me to stock up on more of it once I return home.
