Quintodecimo Via del Campo Falanghina Irpinia DOC 2022
Via del Campo perfectly expresses all the fruity and mineral character of Falanghina. It is a cru made exclusively with grapes from a single Falanghina vineyard located in Mirabella Eclano.
Production area: Mirabella Eclano (VIA DEL CAMPO vineyard, Piano dei Greci locality).
Altitude: 360 meters above sea level.
Exposure: west. Soil: clay/limestone.
Planting density: 4,000 vines per hectare.
Cultivation and pruning system: simple horizontal counter-espalier with Guyot pruning.
Yield: 1.8 kg per strain
Harvest time: late September – first decade of October, hand-picked in small 15 kg crates at full aromatic ripeness of grapes.
Vinification: after a long pressing of whole clusters, the draining must, strictly protected from oxygen, is separated from the press must and clarified by natural sedimentation. Fermentation takes place 70% in stainless steel vats and 30% in new oak barrels. This is followed by an eight-month period of elevage on fine lees regularly resuspended in the wine.
- Sight: presents bright golden yellow hues.
- Nose: Aromas ranging from notes of apple, pineapple, herbs and wildflowers to refined briny and mineral tones.
- Taste: the structure, enveloping, releases delicate mentholated and toasted sensations arising also from the short stay, during fermentation, in small oak barrels.
