Campania Whites – 2010 and 2011 (Part One)

  1. Tom,
    Thanks for the great review. I love this region and their wines, but it’s so difficult to find current information on the latest vintages. It’s good to see quality Fiano coming out and becoming more popular in the states, although price points I think are high. We see a lot Greco here in Florida but I wish we’d get more Falanghina. What do you see happening in the next year or two with prices/availability in the US of quality Fiano and Falanghina? I look forward to part 2. Mark

    1. Mark:

      Thanks for your insightful comment. I really don’t see much more Fiano being produced, which means steady pricing- no decreases, but no dramatic increases either, which is fine with me. It’s hard to predict Falanghina, as it is becoming more popular here in America, so there may be more availability, but we certainly don’t need simple, high acid, light fruit versions of this wine.

      If made properly, Falanghina could become a success in our market, despite its name, which is not easy to remember for those not familiar with the wine. All in all, given Americans’ love for seafood, these should be popular wines, as most are unoaked and very appealing and refreshing.
