Mastroberardino Falanghina del Sannio: a Review

Wine is as good as life to a man, if it be drunk moderately: what life is then to a man that is without wine? for it was made to make men glad.
    —Ecclesiasticus, ch. 38, v. 1

(Our sample bottle was purchased by us at standard retail.)


About Mastroberardino Falanghina del Sannio

Mastroberardino is one of the three big wineries (along with Terredora and Feudi San Gregorio) in southern Italy, and has an eminent history; Falanghina is one of their leading white-wine products. Sannio, whence this wine, is in the Benevento area, one of the two major growing areas for Falanghina (the other being Campi Flegrei).

The Mastroberardino Falanghina del Sannio runs typically around 12½% alcohol. It is quite widely available at retail for from about $13 on up to $25, averaging $19.


Mastroberardino Falanghina del Sannio: Tasting Impressions

Of the several leading Falanghina wines we have tried, this one pleased best (though the Feudi San Gregorio was pretty nice, too). This Mastroberardino Falanghina had a medium to full body, was fairly rich, and had well-defined aromas and flavors typical of the varietal: floral, with some modest minerality and soft, easy acids. It is a wine (and type) that makes a pleasant change from the large class of severe all-acid/mineral whites.

The wine drinks easy, but if one pays attention, that attention is rewarded with a pleasant and distinctive experience. Falanghina is perhaps not one of the world's greatest white-wine grapes, but there is always room for some in our cellar. Recommended.
