Villa Matilde is a agricultural firm situated on the hills of the "Massico", heart of the old production area of the historical wine " Falerno ", where we have 70 hectars of vineyards planted to Falanghina grape, for to make “white Falerno” , Aglianico grape and Piedirosso grape indigenous variety that we use together to produce our “Red Falerno”. Others 50 hectars of vineyards are located in the province of Benevento and Avellino, in the area know as Rocca dei Leoni and Altavilla estate, where we produce Greco di Tufo, Fiano, Taurasi. Aglianico and Falanghina.
Our collaborator of excellence is Riccardo Cotarella, the oenologist that works with us since 1995. Thanks to our work and to continue looking for perfection, we received over the past years several awards from The Wine Advocate, Gambero Rosso - Slow Food (Italian Guide of wine), Sommelier Italian Association, The Wine Spectator and many others. Since then, Villa Matilde’s wines have acquired a fully deserved place on most prestigious halls of great quality wines.
Quality, eco-sustainability, local culture, respect for tradition, growth, technological development, support for scientific research. The ethical principles and values that Villa Matilde represents are inscribed in its history and in the growth of the winery itself. The crucial importance of quality is the first rule. Villa Matilde concentrates on breed; it does not produce endless lines of wines, but elite wines appreciated by those who love wine. Yet, the noble characteristics of the grapes grown here and the highest possible quality standards translate into wine prices that are highly competitive compared to other wineries’ similar offerings.
Villa Matilde wines are the fruit of uninterrupted study and research aimed at identifying the grape varieties that yielded the ancient wines of this area, the aglianico and piedirosso vines that today produce red Falerno and the falanghina variety from which white Falerno is made. Going back to the past is in any case constantly enriched by revisiting and modernising that viticulture through use of state-of-the-art tools. Nor is innovation limited to just technology: it is the fruit of a creative imagination that centres its attention on the local growing area and its winegrowers.
