This wine is known for its rich history and quality, with references to its production dating back to ancient Roman times. It is produced primarily from Aglianico, Piedirosso and Primitivo grape varieties, which contribute to its distinct character and flavour profile.
Falerno del Massico wines are typically full-bodied with a deep ruby color. On the nose, they exhibit a complex bouquet of dark fruits, such as blackberries and plums, along with hints of spices and earthy undertones. On the palate, they are rich and velvety, with well-integrated tannins and a long, persistent finish.
Due to its structure and depth, Falerno is often considered a fine wine that pairs well with important dishes, such as roasted and red meats, game, and aged cheeses. It also has the potential to age gracefully, allowing its flavours to further develop and evolve over time.
