More info

The grapes come from vineyards planted at a density of 3000 per hectare on volcanic soils of grey ash and black pomice. The vineyards were planted at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level from 1970 onwards. The grapes were harvested in the first half of September.

After a gentle pressing, the must was then drawn off the skins. The chilled must was gravity settled and than fermented in stainless steel at 10-12° C for about 20 days.

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.
