Fresh - Fruity
Tenuta Cavalier Pepe
Falanghina is an ancient vine whose origins date back to Antiquity and which has found its best expression in Campania. It is thought that the word derives from the Latin "falanga", referring to the pole used to support vines. The "Lila" cuvée is a 100% Falanghina grown on the hills of Luogosano and Sant'Angelo dell'Esca, located within the Irpinia Falanghina DOC production area.
The grapes are hand-picked and pressed whole. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is matured on its fine lees before bottling.
Straw yellow colour.
Very aromatic nose dominated by pineapple, banana and apple with hints of white flowers.
Fresh in the mouth, with a nice acidity. Lingering aromas of green apple and banana.
Very pleasant wine which goes well with fish, white meat and spicy food.
