falanghinaDallas Morning News Wine of the Week: Terredora di Paolo

April 29, 2009

Terredora di Paolo, Irpinia IGT, Falanghina 2007, $16.99-$18.99

When you get tired of the “same old, same old,” Italy is the place to go for wines with distinctive personalities. OK, so maybe it’s not so easy to pronounce the names of the wines, but it’s sure easy to drink ones like this made from the falanghina grape by the winery owned by Walter Mastroberardino and his children Lucio, Daniela and Paolo. They may be the largest vineyard owners and winery in the area, but they handle their wines with the attention and care of artisans.

This one is made to emphasize the delectable peach, pineapple, pear and apple fruit buoyed by tangy acidity. Serve it with a creamy pasta. Available at Centennial Fine Wine and Spirits, Farpointe Cellar, Jimmy’s Food Store and Monticello Liquor.
