Wine produced from the vinification of aglianic grapes from bicenthen vineyards which are survived on the parxity fillossera who did almost extended the vineyards in the Europe of the years 50.
The Greeks introduced this wine along the tyrrhenian coasts when they founded their colonies of (VII-VI ac). That could explain the presence of synonyms of hellenic, that changed in aglianico.
The name probably derives from the fact that vines it were tied to supporting poles called “falanga” and therefore falanghina which literally means vine s supported by poles.
Rue Dè Passi is a special rosso amabile, fruit of aglianico grapes adjoining the vineyard, harvested lately as these vines are not usually harvested. The name Rue De’ Passi recalls the small street that links the cellar to the vineyard in a few steps.
