Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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. "
88 Points

"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."
