The legend says:
The God Bacchus once, pretending to be someone else, asked hospitality to an old man called Falerno. This man offered him a bed where to sleep, food and milk. Bacchus, moved by his generosity, transformed the milk in wine and gave birth to one of the most legendary wine: Falerno del Massico
One insciption found in a Pub in Pompeii quotes:
“With one ass you can get a good Wine, with two asses you can get the best, with four asses you can get a Falernum”
The Falerno del Massico is produced at the slopes of the Mount Massico in the Campania Region, not so far from the border with Lazio. It is a volcanic area since the Mount Massico is the result of the eruption of the Volcano Roccamonfina. The mineral flavour of the white Wines is with pleasure highlighted by the volcanic soil.
The White Wines are Falanghina 100% whereas the Falerno del Massico DOC is produced with 80% Aglianico Wine and 20% Piedirosso, a local Grape. The best producers of Falerno del Massico are, for us Villa Matilde, Masseria Felicia and Rampaniuci.
