Falerno del Massico Rosso DOC
Falerno del Massico Rosso DOC produced by Villa Matilde is obtained from 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso grapes harvested after careful selection in the hilly vineyards of San Castrese estate, on the slopes of Roccamonfina volcano, in the province of Caserta.
Red Falerno's winemaking process involves a first destemming of the grapes, followed by must maceration at a temperature between 25-26 °C for about 20-25 days. During fermentation, daily pumping over and delestages are carried out and at the end of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, 50% of the wine is aged in Allier barriques (new for one third) and the remaining 50% ages in traditional Slavonian oak barrels for a period of 10-12 months. Before being on the market, the wine undergoes a further period of refinement in the bottle.
The wine has a deep red colour. An intense and complex bouquet of violets, black fruits, cherries, blackberries and raspberries. In the mouth it is full, elegant and harmonious. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.
