Product Description

This pure Falanghina varietal is from the Rocca Dei Leoni property, 50 miles from the main estate.

First issued in 1989, its no-oak concept is meant to maintain and enhance the intrinsic freshness and fragrance. The grapes come from old vines.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested from Villa Matilde’s hillside vineyards, situated 140 metres high on the slopes of the extinct volcano, Roccamonfina. Off-the-skins vinification, soft crushing, removal of the must from the lees at low temperatures and fermentation in stainless-steel tanks at a temperature of  18/20°C, for around 20 days. The wine is then aged in stainless-steel tanks for around 3 months.

Tasting Notes: Pale straw in colour with an elegant, fruity, and floral nose. There are distinct aromas of grapefruit and peaches, genista and roses, and delicate notes of sage. On the palate it is pleasingly fresh and well balanced with delicate additional aromas of almonds.

Grape Variety: 100% Falanghina

Alcohol Content: 12.5%
