(2020) One of a number of excellent white grape varieties from Campania in southern Italy, just inland from Napes, this Falanghina has the lightest touch of honey, a hint of almond, but otherwise its herby and apple fruited. The palate is crisp but textured, more ripe apple and a hint of peach, and a very nicely balanced, dry and citrussy finish. Part of Lidl's 'Wine Tour', May 2020.
(2019) Coming from the volcanic 'tufo' soils of Campania, Greco has found popularity recently along with southern vine siblings Fiano and Falenghina. This is a modest but pleasing example as part of Lidl's Spring 2019 'wine tour' which kicked off on 29th March, nicely concentrated aromatically with pear and lemon, a hint of grippy citrus peel and melon skins too. In the mouth it is fresh and quite weighty, and if lacking an ounce of fruit perhaps, it makes up for it with concentration and good peppery length. A bit of personality here.
(2014) >From Campania and the vineyards around Naples, there's a touch of honey to this aromatically, a touch of nuttiness too, with a dry Cox's Pippin apple fruit. The palate is clean and fresh, but there is texture here and juicy weight, the ripe apple punch and touch of grapefruit pith, in a textural, long finish. 87
