Old wine, whose first traces date back to pliny the elder. Its name comes from the apian grapes that were characterized by an intense sweetness and were therefore particularly loved by bees.
The wine was introduced by the greeks along the tyrrhenian coast. The name comes from characteristic shape of the cluster, whose grapes are grouped in pairs.
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.
