FALERNO DEL MASSICO
Denominazione di Origine Protetta /// Bianco
This wine is produced only in the finest growing years, from grapes from the vineyard of the same name, one of the oldest and best-aspected parcels on the San Castrese estate, planted on the slopes of the extinct Roccamonfina volcano. Appearing an intense straw yellow with golden highlights, its highly-distinctive bouquet releases wild rose, banana, pineapple, William’s pear, and cocoa butter, flanked by hints of musk, toasted hazelnuts, and vanilla. Full-bodied, velvet smooth, and long-lasting, it is undeniably an elegant wine of noble character.
