Everybody loves Italian food; it is always ranked the most popular cuisine in the world. Talk to anyone who has visited Italy and the first remarks aren’t about art and architecture or the ruins. No, the first things they comment on was how good the food was on their trips. From the fanciest restaurant to the neighborhood trattoria, they go on and on about the fantastic food. Even people comment on the local wines they had with their food, made by nearby wineries with native grapes to the area. With all of those positive experiences it always surprises me how little people know about Italian wines. I try to write about wines from all over to make people more comfortable and confident when ordering them. Here is another Southern Italian wine to try.
Diomede, Falanghina, Campania, Italy, 2012 is a great example of this southern Italian grape. Pale straw in color, it has lemon peel, straw and wild flowers on the nose. The palate is full with tart lemon, Granny Smith apples and minerals. Crisp acidity balances the fruit leading to a medium finish.
Enjoy this wine with raw oysters, light seafood preparations or on it’s own as an aperitif.
