Wikipedia suggests that that the Falanghina grape may have been a basis for the classical Falernian wine.
Medium-pale straw color.
Fresh clean sweet-seeming pear smell, melon, always-eager for another sniff.
Fruity dry apple/pear/peach flavor, long mineral finish, food-friendly acid, robust.
We'll never know what Falernian tasted like, but I'm quite intrigued by the notion that this excellent medium-to-full flavored $17.10 bottle may provide a clue.
