The winery was established in 2002, rooted in a longstanding tradition of viticulturists. Beginning with Orlando Nugnes, it evolved into a thriving winemaking reality with his son Antonio and grandson Orlando.
Blessed with a mild and temperate climate, fertile volcanic soil, and the pleasant Campanian sun, Nugnes wines develop intense and delicate aromas. This is where Falerno del Massico reaches its pinnacle, a magnificent fusion of noble land and a company that deeply values its precious grapes.
Tradition, technology, environmental stewardship, and innovation converge at Nugnes today. It embodies a harmonious blend of modernity and heritage, a priceless result of decades of experience augmented by the finest tools that contemporary research offers.
One of Campania’s oldest grape variety and the one behind “Falernian Wine”, the most famous wine during Roman times. Also produced as a Sweet Passito wine and a Sparkling, Falanghina is one of the most interesting Italian grape varieties that produces dry wines with tropical fruit and floral flavors, as well as structure and freshness.
There are two distinct biotypes: Falanghina Beneventana, used in Falanghina del Sannio DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata), which also has four subzones; and Falanghina Napoletana, the grape in the Campi Flegrei DOC. Each varietal wine has different characteristics, as do their respective growing zones. Vineyards in the Sannio denomination have higher altitudes, and calcareous and clay soils. The vineyards in Campi Flegrei, near Naples, are closer to sea level and have sandy, volcanic soils. Falanghina del Sannio has more structure and high acidity, while Campi Flegrei are lighter-bodied and crisp, with saline mineral notes and more floral fragrances.
