Macchialupa LeSurte Taurasi 2011
– Taurasi is the prince of Campania wines, from Aglianico Taurasi grapes grown with special care and attention.
Frequent pumping over in the winemaking process and aging in French oak barrels for 12 months combined with bottle aging for 24 months.
Intense ruby red in the glass.
The nose is complex, well balanced and intense in its fruity and floral expression. Notes of blackberries, morello cherry, violet, tobacco, vanilla and cinnamon emerge.
On the palate it is full and soft, with the heat balanced by freshness and flavor. Fine and well integrated tannins, never aggressive in the full-bodied sip. Persistent.

Villa Matilde Falanghina 2018
From the Rocca dei Leoni estate located in Benevento’s inland area, on the slopes of Mount Taburno. Oak-free, this is elegant, fruity and floral with distinct notes of grapefruit, peach, rose and sage leaves. The palate is fresh and well balanced with a lingering almond finish.
Villa Matilde links its name to Falerno del Massico , the wine so celebrated in antiquity and brought back to life, after centuries of oblivion, by Francesco Paolo Avallone , founder of the company in the sixties. Today the Falerno del Massico Doc is one of the most popular productions in Campania and is the undisputed banner of Villa Matilde in 28 countries around the world. The company is run by Salvatore and Maria Ida Avallone , sons of Francesco Paolo, who passed away in 2006: in the last twenty years they have successfully carried out their father’s project by combining local culture and innovation, entrusting their wines to the winemaker Fabio Gennarelli with the advice of Riccardo Cotarella.
From the province of Caserta , where there is still the company center (with guesthouse, zero km restaurant, spaces for tasting), they went to the provinces of Benevento and Avellino with new vineyards, new projects and wines that tell the strong identity of Campania Felix . In 2000 Villa Matilde inaugurated Tenuta Rocca dei Leoni and in 2004 Tenuta d’Altavilla, starting the production of new wines including the mighty Taurasi.
