This most famous wine in literature and history is a blend of aglianico and piedirosso; the clusters are carefully quality-selected from the hillside vineyards on the San Castrese estate growing on the slopes of the extinct Roccamonfina volcano, in the province of Caserta. Showing a deep red, its intense, rich bouquet is brimming with fragrant sweet violets, wild black berryfruit, cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. The palate is full-volumed, elegant, and finely balanced in all its components.
“Severus, fortis, ardens”: such was the description of ancient Farlernum, ancient literature’s most famous wine, lost to views in the early 1990s and re-introduced in the 1970s in Ville Matilde’s hillside vineyards of on the slopes of the extinct Roccamonfina volcano. The bond with the local culture and its winemaking traditions thus constitutes the beginning of the history and the foundation of the production philosophy of this winery. Respect for the environment and ready receptivity for innovation are, on the other hand, its new driving force.
