Elegant nose both floral and fruity, with distinct aromas of pineapple, bananas and peach, complemented by genista, roses, delicate notes of sage leaf. It's well-balanced on the palate and fully confirms the bouquet, with delicate additional notes recalling almonds.
"The 2009 Falanghina is a beautiful white that captures the essence of this ancient, rediscovered grape. A fresh, floral white, the Villa Matilde’s Falanghina is an excellent choice for an aperitif and will pair nicely with delicate fish and seafood dishes. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. "
The Wine Advocate
"Made from a very old clone of Falanghina (a grape whose history spans back to the Roman Empire), this bright and tonic wine bursts open with green notes of kiwi, lime and freshly cut grass. Those background citrus and white mineral aromas would make it perfect to pair with lightly fried calamari."
