WTN: Falanghina from Villa Matilde

by Tim York » Tue Apr 14, 2009 7:09 am

Falanghina Roccamonfina IGT 2006 – Villa Matilde – Alc.12.5% - (€11 in an up-market cheese shop) under a Nomacorc plastic closure.

This estate is located in Campania about 80km North-West of Naples http://www.villamatilde.it/index.php .
C: An attractive greenish yellow with a few large bubbles round the rim and at the bottom of the glass.
N: Very attractive and quite well developed cocktial in white fruit and fowers with savoury herbs.
P: Dry and aromatic with medium body, refreshing acidity and a pretty grapeyness in addition the aromas from the nose and more smiling charm than my memory of slightly sterner offerings of this grape from Feudi San Gregorio. A very nice wine to accompany a Mediterranean style fishy Spring salad; 15.5/20++.
