VIVI Falanghina

VIVI Falanghina
Italy, $15

For years those Western Canadian acolytes of the crisp Italian grape Falanghina were forced to drink Feudi di San Gregorio (a little like only being allowed to drive a BMW). It’s a lovely wine, but a tad pricey for an everyday drinker. So it was nice to see a new entry in the niche falanghina category. Vivi checks in at a considerably lower price point and it still retains that crisp Granny Smith apple bite that the grape is known for. To be honest, it doesn’t have as much honey finish as the Feudi, but life, my friends, is all about compromises.
