Introduced to Italy by the Greeks in ancient times, Falanghina is one of the most widespread and well-known white grape varieties in the Campania region. It is mainly grown in the mountainous area of Sannio, in the Beneventano area and in some volcanic districts of the Phlegrean Fields. Its name seems to derive from the large stakes, called "phalanxes", which have been used since ancient times to support the growth of the vine. It produces a straw-yellow white wine of good luminosity, dry and very expressive, with marine, citrus and mineral scents. Thanks to its juicy and fresh character, it is traditionally served with Tyrrhenian dishes such as blue fish, shellfish and other seafood.
