about this subregion

Nestled in Italy's picturesque Campania region, the Falerno del Massico DOC boasts a vinicultural heritage that stretches back to ancient times. The environment of this wine-producing region is a harmonious blend of rolling hills, gentle breezes, and rich volcanic soils, factors that collectively make it a prime location for grape cultivation.

While several grape varieties flourish in this land, the region primarily prides itself on three notable varieties, each bringing a distinctive character to the wines produced here. Among the reds, Aglianico stands tall, known for its deep hues and a complexity of flavors ranging from dark fruits to nuances of leather and tobacco. Primitivo, another predominant red grape, adds an enchanting sweetness with hints of dark cherries, spices, and sometimes even chocolate. Together, they present wines that are robust, full-bodied, and a true reflection of the region's bounteous terroir.

On the other hand, the white grape variety that captivates most wine connoisseurs here is Falanghina. This grape is a testament to the Mediterranean sun, producing wines that dance with flavors of citrus, green apple, and delicate floral notes, all underscored by a vibrant minerality.

In essence, the Falerno del Massico DOC is more than just a wine designation. It’s a celebration of an environment that, for centuries, has been harmoniously intertwined with viticulture, producing wines that speak volumes of the region's rich earth and traditions.
