The white grape FALANGHINA is probably of Greek origin and has been coltivated by the Italic people of the Samnites. It owes its name to the ancient viticulture system "phalange" (tied to the stake). You may also see this variety is a descendant of the ancient variety Aminea that was used for the white version of the famous "Falerner" in ancient Rome. Its cultivation is recommended in the regions of Campania and Abruzzo. Also in Sardinia their cultivation is permitted.
The late-ripening FALANGHINA (approximately in the second half of September) is cultured in the presence mainly in the Campania region and especially in the vicinity of Naples. FALANGHINA needs a warm and dry climate. The grapes are small, roundish, yellowish gray, with frosted shell and a strong sweet-sour pulp.
