Wine of the Week: Scuotto Falanghina

Campania, located on the Italian Peninsula, is known for the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri; as well as its amazingly simplistic and fresh cuisine. Wines from this region are impressive and many of them are found nowhere else in the world. Scuotto's 100% Beneventano Falanghina is a genetically distinct variety of Falanghina (a native varietal from that region) that tends to be more structured and floral. Pair this white with simply cooked white fish, grilled prawns, and even stronger flavors such as lemon, garlic, and capers.   

Eduardo Scuotto was driven to settle in Irpinia by his passion for wine and his desire to experience the synergy between man and nature. With the support of his family, his dream has been realized and Tenuta Scuotto was founded. Each aspect of their production is characterised by respect for the traditions of the land, while at the same time avoiding uniformity. Working with enologist Angelo Valentino, the estate produces wines that show the passion of the winemakers and their love for this beautiful region rich of history and traditions. Tenuta Scuotto limits vine yields, pays great attention to detail, and harvests by hand, all to achieve the highest quality raw product. Their ambition is to continue on this path, being able to blend tradition with innovation to meet the changing tastes of wine lovers.
