A family history made of people, ideas, and a lot of passion. Rossovermiglio originates from a centuries-old family tradition of winemakers in Paduli, in Samnite territory, in the heart of Campania. Already in 1800, the Verlingieri family produced quality red grapes and wines, which were successfully sold in the cellar located in the heart of the old Paduli. The company, passed on from father to son for generations, has been led by Piero Verlingieri since 1988. After a few years, in 1992 he began to re-plant vineyards, preferring white wines to red ones of the family tradition, leaving in the Rossovermiglio brand the emblematic synthesis of a family history. Piero and Maria Teresa Verlingieri, husband and wife, are the true guardians of the long family winery tradition. For them, producing quality wine still means to follow a strict discipline in the vineyard as in the cellar, in full respect of local tradition and the territory. Rossovermiglio produces only wines from native vines of Campania. An intentional choice to enhance the character and the typicality of some of the best Italian vines.
The Falanghina grape is a variety thought to derive from the ancient Greek-Balkan strains and takes its name from the Italian “falanga”, the stake supporting the vines. It was almost abandoned, but after its vines survived the phylloxera, it gained prominence and went through a period of renaissance and it is now widely cultivated in Southern Italy.
It is capable of producing wines of real interest with pure, transparent white fruit aromas, often framed by a fine breadcrumb note from lees ageing. Falanghina comes in a variety of styles, from fresh easy drinking wines to serious, ageworthy and minerally samples at modest alcohol levels. Mature wines can even show a hint of petrol similar to that of aged Riesling.
