Lacrime di Luna I.G.P.
From the Falanghina grapes we can make different products which, depending on the land of origin, are significantly different from each other. Along the slopes of Mount Taburno they certainly express characters of the highest level, and it is for this reason that Giovanni Rapuano has embarked on the withering road to enhance these characteristics to the maximum. This passito in fact is the absolute concentration of minerality and spices that coexist in absolute harmony.

WINE MAKING PROCESS
The best Falanghina clusters, chosen in the vineyard, are placed in 5 kg small boxes and stored in ventilated and sunny places, for about 30 days.The grapes undergo a dehydration of about 30%, vinified with light maceration of the skins (24 -48 hours) and lightly pressed, a dense and strongly sugary must is obtained which is fermented in second passage barriques until exhaustion of the yeast activity with sugar residue typical of wines from dried grapes. After another six months of steel it is bottled with sterile filtration.
The passito di Torre del Pagus already presents unique characters to the eye, with an amber and luminous color, it is expressed with evolved fruity hints of dried apricots and sweet spices such as cinnamon and cloves, the rightly sweet and not cloying taste enhances the hints even more on the nose with long persistence.
