Just north of Naples, right on the coast of Campania, there is a very small grape-growing area called the Campi Flegrei. The soil is so sandy here that the vines can be planted directly in it, without being grafted to other rootstocks. La Sibilla’s Campi Flegrei wines made from the Falanghina grape are serious wines priced like an everyday bottle. Their distinction and character transcends what we see in America at the same price point, and the quality is apparent with every sip.
Luigi di Meo and his family have been farming these vineyards for over five generations and their wines are some of the best values in the store. What should you think of when you think of Campania? Fresh seafood. Fresh vegetables. The smell of the ocean. Flavorful pastas. Hospitality. Family.
The 2022 La Sibilla Falanghina showcases the dynamic duo of citrus and minerality, but with more weight than something like a Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre. There’s a subtle herbaceousness, but it’s wrapped up in salinity and notes of fresh tarragon. Pair this with just about anything, from a cheese plate with some salami to a seafood risotto. We think you’ll be a believe in both La Sibilla and Falanghina by the time you empty the bottle.
