    Ahh, the Falernian of old:

    “…seu maestus omni tempore vixeris,
    seu te in remoto gramine per dies festos reclinatum bearis interiore nota Falerni”.

    jaykay: Well done.

    “Although a young appellation, the Falerno del Massico is probably one of the oldest wine ever created and about which we do have written documentation traced back to 300 BC. Professor Trabucco dedicated most of his life studying old Roman’s manuscripts and searching in archeological area for the evidence of the production of this legendary wine. After years of digging and DNA tests, the ancient vineyards were found and the new appellation of Falerno del Massico DOC was borne.

    GRAPE: 100% Primitivo

    SOIL: Clay, sand with lots of volcanic intrusions.”
