Rocca dei Leoni Falanghina
Rocca dei Leoni estates of Villa Matilde winery are located in the heart of Sannio Beneventano, between Caudina valley, Telesina valley and the valley of Tammaro River. They cover an area of about 30 hectares on volcanic soils rich in phosphorus and potassium: a unique terroir, sweet and sour at the same time, which gives strong notes and intense aromas. The very old vines, the rich cherry blossoms and fir trees, chestnuts, nuts and broom, contribute to the aromatic profile of wine, which is derived from 100%Falanghina clones.
Vinification off the skins. After a gentle pressing, the chilled must is gravity-settled then ferments in steel at 10-12 °C for about 20 days. The wine ages in stainless steel for about 3 months.
The wine has a pale straw yellow colour. On the nose the aromas is intense, floral and fruity, with essences of banana, tropical fruits and white peach, while the flavour conquers your mouth thanks to its sapid note, balancing the aromatic bouquet.
