It all began in 2001 with a visionary idea by Antonio Pagano, who, together with his son Angelo, shares a dream: to introduce the world to Falerno del Massico. Falerno del Massico is descended from the renowned Roman wine Falernum, considered one of the absolute best red wines during ancient Roman times. Fattoria Pagano is committed to carrying on this millenary tradition, producing an excellent wine that represents the historical heritage and quality of the territory.
Their philosophy revolves around bringing wine as close as possible to nature by adopting a viticulture that deeply respects the soil, microclimate, and plant biodiversity of the territory. The goal is to obtain intact and ripe fruits in order to create the conditions where the fragrance, taste, and aroma of the wine can be the purest expression of the vineyard. This is why a great wine can only arise from the care and love transmitted to their vineyard. Harvesting, in fact, is seen as a grand celebration, a moment of joy and naturalness, following the ancient traditions of the region.
The Piedirosso is a red grape variety of very ancient origins native of the Naples area. Until recently grape was mainly used in blend with other local grapes mainly the Aglianico but in the last few years thanks to a few winemakers, the grape is enjoying a renaissance, producing outstanding 100% Piedirosso red wines. The Piedirosso is nowadays found in the whole region of Campania, but it is in the Naples and Vesuvius area that is mainly cultivated and produce outstanding examples of Volcanic wines.
The Piedirosso grape produces elegant wine with an intense ruby red colour, fruity with hints of violets on the nose, medium to full bodied, slightly tannic, with a lively acidity.
