Description Build A Case!
 
Established in the 1750s by winemaker Pietro di Mastro Berardino, Mastroberardino is Campania"s most renowned winery. Pietro was awarded the professional title of Mastro as testament to his skill in quality winemaking, a tradition that continued uninterrupted for 10 generations and lives on to this day.

The Mastroberardino family is dedicated to making wine from ancient varieties that are indigenous to the region. Falanghina is the primary grape for the Sannio appellation and is named after falangae, a Latin term for supporting stakes. Many believe this grape to have been the basis of the legendary Falernian wine, the most prized wine of ancient Rome, due to its unique profile and fragrance.

Today, Mastroberardino is universally acknowledged to have been the most important guardian of the viticultural and oenological heritage of the Roman age. Under the patronage of the "Presidenza della Repubblica," the winery has been appointed to reintroduce vine growing in the ancient city of Pompeii. The family based firm has long championed the indigenous varieties of Campania: Aglianico, Falanghina, Fianco, Piedirosso, Greco and Coda di Volpe.

Tasting Notes: Colour: Straw yellow Nose: Hints of pineapple, white peach, and a typical licquorice aroma Palate: A well structured and balanced wine, showing fine fruit allied to mineral notes
