Intense straw yellow colour. Fruity aroma with pineapple and ripe pear notes. Supple in the mouth with a high aromatic persistence
Wine Advocate 91 points - Fattoria La Rivolta’s 2011 Falanghina del Sannio Taburno is a knock out. Orange blossoms, mint and ripe, succulent peaches all make an appearance in the glass. A broad-shouldered, rich white, the 2011 impresses for the way it deftly balance intense fruit with the vibrant, saline notes that give the wine its energy. This is a fabulous showing from La Rivolta. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2015. ” (Feb 2013)

Producer
Cantina del Taburno, located on the slopes of Mount Taburno, belongs to the ”Consorzio Agrario di Benevento” (Agricultural Consortium of Benevento). The Consortium was established in 1901, and it had an extremely important role in the development of agriculture in the Sannio area. The winery was built in 1972 in Foglianise.It is a point of reference for viticulture, due to its philosophy and for its positive impact on the economy of the area. The grapes vinified at Cantina del Taburno are grown in vineyards (of an extension of approximately 600 hectares) standing within the area of the towns on the slopes of Mount Taburno: Foglianise, Torrecuso, Vitulano, Campoli del Monte Taburno, Castelpoto, Apollosa, Bonea, Montesarchio, Ponte, Tocco Caudio, Paupisi and Benevento. The ecosystem of the vines in this area is quite unique due to the type and exposure of the soils, to the particular kind of climate, to the grape varietals and to the agricultural practices. The hills with clayey and Marley-calcareous soils, the mild winters with regular rainfall between October and March, the dry and warms summers concur to create extremely favourable conditions for high quality viticulture.
