Villa Matilde Falerno del Massico Bianco 2018

VMFMW18

New product

Flavours of ripe peaches and pears sit perfectly alongside notes of sweet pastry cream and rose petals, with just a hint of sage adding complexity. The palate is rich and textured, with a lengthy finish, lifted by a delicate seam of acidity.

More info

This wine is made from a specific clone of Falanghina grapes, propagated from a handful of vines that had survived phylloxera. The vineyards are planted at a density of 4,500 to 4,800 vines per hectare on volcanic soils, rich in phosphorous and potassium. The vineyards were planted between 1963 and 1992. The grapes were harvested in the second half of September.

The grapes were cryomacerated at 5°C, then gently pressed. The chilled must was then gravity settled before the majority underwent temperaturecontrolled fermentation at 10-12°C in stainless steel tanks for around twenty days, with around 15% being fermented in amphorae. After fermentation, the wine was matured for a further three months before bottling.

Villa Matilde

The story of Villa Matilde began in the 1960s as the passion project of Neapolitan lawyer, Francesco Paolo Avallone. His vision was guided by an abiding interest in Falernum, a wine best described as the “first growth” of the Roman Empire and his tireless work and research into its history ultimately led to the creation of the modern-day DOC of Falerno del Massico in 1989. A similarly passionate approach is applied to the rest of their range and aside from Falerno, they produce stellar examples of Campanian wines from their vineyards in the prime areas of upper Caserta, the Sannio near Benevento and Irpinia. Today, the winery is managed by Avallone’s children, who have single-mindedly dedicated themselves to continuing their father’s dream.
