Impressions: This lovely Falanghina falls under the category of winter whites, for its weight and warming finish. The aromas are enticing with notes of green apple, peach blossom, white flowers, honey, ginger and wet rocks. The palate displays a lively acidity that introduces a finessed, fleshy and nuanced concentration. The finish is lengthy, yet crisp with lasting impressions of pears, hints of baking spices and saline.
About The Producer: The Mustilli family settled in the town of Sant’Agata dei Goti at the start of the 14th century and has been producing wine for five centuries. Sant’ Agata dei Goti is a sub-region of the DOC Sannio, and Mustilli is the only winery in the area. Starting in the 1960’s, Leonardo Mustilli established the modern-day iteration of its production, replacing the dirt floor with cement for hygiene purposes and adding electricity. He is the first to have bottled pure Falanghina in the 70s. Today, the estate is run by two of the daughters- Anna Chiara, who manages the vineyards and winemaking, and Paola, the commercial side of the business
