Tasting notes
“Nec cellis ideo contende Falernis, wrote Virgil in his Georgics: Don’t try to outdo Falernum. This most famous wine in literature and history is a blend of aglianico and piedirosso; the clusters are carefully quality-selected from the hillside vineyards on the San Castrese estate growing on the slopes of the extinct Roccamonfina volcano, in the province of Caserta. Showing a deep red, its intense, rich bouquet is brimming with fragrant sweet violets, wild black berryfruit, cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. The palate is full-volumed, elegant, and finely balanced in all its components

Falerno del Massico DOP Rosso

VINIFICATION
After de-stemming and pressing, the must ferments on the skins at 25-26° for about 20-25 days, with daily pumpover and délestages. Malolactic fermentation follows.
MATURATION
Half of the wine matures in one-third new Allier oak barriques, and the other half in the traditional 10- to 35hl large Slavonian oak casks, for a period of 10-12 months, followed by ageing in the bottle.
