Di Costanzo is the independent project of Massimo Di Costanzo. In 2002 with a Viticulture and Enology diploma in hand, he apprenticed on four continents eager to learn his craft and the culture of wine on the global stage.
As a native Californian, he laid down roots in Napa Valley working for several small and esteemed estate wineries where he began to articulate his own winemaking vision, both philosophically and in the wine.
In 2010, the first few cases of Di Costanzo Cabernet Sauvignon were produced and a dream realized.
The 26-acre Farella Vineyard in Coombsville benefits from its west-facing, volcanic hillsides bathed in warm, afternoon sun, making it amongst the warmest sites in the traditionally temperate appellation. The vineyard, composed of red gravelly tufa, sits on a base of volcanic ash and is farmed meticulously and sustainably by the Farella family.
The Farella Vineyard has been in production since the late 1970s and has the oldest known Cabernet Sauvignon vines in Coombsville. All of these characteristics combine to create the ideal conditions for an estate wine of proven longevity, purity, and place.
