Producer: 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.

Vineyard: The grapes come from vineyards planted at a density of 3,000 vines per hectare on sandy clay, sandstone and quartz. The vineyards were planted from 1980 onwards at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level. The grapes were harvested in the second half of October.

Winery: The bunches were destemmed and gently pressed followed by a period of cold maceration. Fermentation lasted for twenty days in stainless steel tanks, before the wine was racked and underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was then matured in tank followed by a further period of ageing in large oval oak barrels before bottling.

Taste: Full bodied yet well rounded with velvety tannins and rich flavours of wild blackberries and red berries. The finish is long and spicy, lifted by an extremely appetising freshness.
