A textbook example of the appellation, opening with flavours of pear, hazelnut and honey which give way to elegant notes of white flowers. The palate has a pleasing weight, with a refreshing lick of acidity. The finish is long and balanced, showing the refinement that this variety is capable of.

More info

The grapes come from vineyards planted at a density of 2,500 to 3,000 vines per hectare on volcanic soils of tufa and marly clay. The vineyards were planted between 1968 and 1985. The grapes were harvested in the second half of October.

The grapes were cryomacerated at 5°C, then gently pressed. The chilled must was then gravity settled before undergoing temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then matured in tank for four 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.
