DOCG - 2018

Production area

San Marco, Montefalcione
Avellino

Elegant white wine with great structure and an incredible aging potential. Its straw yellow color evolves over time, becoming more intense. The long aging period allows it to fully develop its organoleptic characteristics starting from 24 months after the harvest.

Floral and fruity aromas with pronounced minerality evolve into notes of toasted and dried fruit over time. On the palate, it is enveloping and savory.

Produced exclusively with selected grapes from the Scillicampana Vineyard.

LEGEND

T h e 1 0 " P " s t o n e

Montefalcione also boasts its own mysterious legend, its own historical enigma. At the center of the enigma is a stone, engraved with the same letter ‘P’ ten times.

The stone was commissioned to be engraved in 1693 by Don Carlo Paoletti, who was the archpriest of Montefalcione at that time. Don Carlo, who had been the subject of gossip in the town, decided to leave all his possessions to anyone who could decipher what he had engraved.

He also set a time limit for anyone who wanted to attempt solving the enigma: three months. However, when the time expired, none of his fellow citizens were able to guess the hidden secret, and thus no one could claim the archpriest’s belongings.

The solution to the mystery of the 10 P’s

Think first, then speak, because words spoken without thought carry wait (or regret)*

*In Italian, all words begin with the letter P
