2018 Terre Stregate "Svelato" Falanghina del Sannio

SKU #1417813 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There is some good freshness and bright citrus within the 2018 Falanghina del Sannio Svelato. The wine has a pretty intensity and brightness, with intermingled tones of natural rubber, orchard fruit and grapefruit. A colleague of mine who tasted this wine suggested it would be the perfect pairing for spaghetti with colatura di alici, Campania's inimitable anchovy extract used to flavor local pasta dishes or poured over bread. An ample 65,000 bottles were produced. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark In the 2018 Falanghina Svelato I’m finding a fresh and zesty display of salty minerals mixed with dusty florals, wild herbs, and crushed green apple with a citrus zest. On the palate, soft textures and ripe stone fruits are contrasted by brisk acids and saline-minerals, as the 2018 'Svelato' Falanghina seems to glide across the senses with balanced richness. The finish is long, tugging at the senses in a sweet and sour display of sweet citrus and green apple. (EG) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Aromas of tropical fruit and white spring wildflower shape the nose. On the crisp palate, bright acidity accompanies pineapple and apricot alongside a hint of wild herbs. (KO) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Another delicious value gem from the realm of indigenous Italian white varietals, the Terre Stregate Svelato Falanghina shows explosive, sweet floral aromas with undertones of ripe peach and herbs, while the palate displays flavors of apricot, tropical pineapple, and kiwi, all braced by vibrant acidity.
