StyleCrisp & Fresh
The name Vesevo is the historic name for Vesuvius. The vineyards are located in the Irpinian hills of Campania, potentially one of Italy's most exciting wine producing areas. Despite being so far south, there are large differences here between day and night temperatures, making this one of the latest regions in Italy to harvest.
Low temperature fermentation has retained the fresh, crisp and aromatic quality of the wine whilst still allowing its character to shine through. Perfumes of white flowers and white melon with mineral notes provide a backdrop to the full, ripe palate, and lift the finish. An elegant wine, with a llingering touch of honey.
'Vesevo is a higly skilled operator making beautiful, perfumed wine from indigenous Italian grapes. This graceful, pear-scented Falanghina is the perfect summer white with elegant,creamy fruit and a haunting, long finish - I adore this wine.' Matthew Jukes Six of the Best Wines for Barbecues - Daily Mail 26th July 2014
