Falanghina: This ancient vine formed perhaps the basis of the Falerno wine, cultivated around Naples for a long time; its presence is mentioned in 1825 among the most popular vines of the Area.

Apparently, the name of this variety is derived from its requirement, since it has a strong growth, to rest on supporting posts, called falanga, therefore falanghina means “vine supported by posts”.
