    Falanghina Irpinia DOC 750ml

    Tax included

    This wine presents itself with a straw-yellow color, complemented by greenish reflections, and offers an intense floral aroma accompanied by hints of exotic fruit, citrus, and pear. Sensations of acidity and salinity gradually develop, imparting a pleasant and balanced complexity to the taste.

    Grape and Vineyard: This wine is crafted from Falanghina grapes sourced from proprietary vineyards in Irpinia. The harvest timing is determined by the values of maturation parameters, particularly focusing on acidity, pH, sugar content, and the overall health of the grape clusters.

    Winemaking: The winemaking process involves gently pressing the grapes using a vacuum pneumatic press, with the use of inert gas to minimize air-grape contact during pressing. The obtained must is then decanted for 24-48 hours and transferred to stainless steel tanks, where fermentation begins at a controlled temperature of 15-17°C, with the addition of selected indigenous yeasts. The resulting wine is left in contact with its own lees for a variable maturation period (sur lie).

    Our history

    At a little less than 700 meters high and immersed in the green of the rich hilly tradition of the territory, the Riccio Winery is located in one of the most characteristic villages of the Irpinia soil, Chiusano di San Domenico, where the charm of ancient places fits into the ferment of vegetation and a landscape of extraordinary vitality. The presence of strong slopes makes it perfectly suited to the cultivation of the vine and the abundant supply of waterways, accompanied by a particularly favorable wind effect, give the wines produced in the area excellent quality characteristics.

    The environment and philosophy

    In such a context, thanks to the careful and personal care of Giuseppe De Marco, it was possible to combine the use of the most advanced viticultural cultivation and production techniques with the skilful work of expert hands and passionate men. The fruit of the vine, offered by a favorable and generous land, is thus ennobled in a product of the highest quality (the "Janus wines") that is aimed at the most refined palates and the most demanding tastes.
