This wine is made from a specific clone of Falanghina grapes, propagated from a handful of vines that had survived phylloxera. Grapes come from the Caracci vineyard on the San Castrese estate planted in 1968 on volcanic soils, rich in phosphorous and potassium, at a density of 3,500 vines per hectare at an altitude of 150 metres above sea level. The grapes were harvested at the beginning of October.

The grapes were cryomacerated at 5°C, then gently pressed. The chilled must was then gravity settled before undergoing fermentation in a mixture of temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, medium-toast Alliers oak barriques and around 30% in amphorae for around 20 days. The proportion fermented in amphorae was aged for a further three months, with the final blend ageing for a further two years in tank 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.
