Winemaker's Notes

Light straw-yellow. Elegant, floral and fruity, with distinct aromas of pineapple, bananas and peach, complemented by genista, roses, delicate notes of sage leaf. This wine is well-balanced, pleasing, and fully confirms the bouquet with delicate additional notes recalling almonds.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Falerno del Massico Bianco only suffers in comparison to the estate's other whites. It is another generous, layered wine, with perhaps a touch less aromatic delineation and body than the top 2010 whites here. Mint, jasmine and juicy white peaches linger on the understated finish. Falerno del Massico Bianco is an ancient clone of Falanghina. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
