    • "Cecubo" Rosso Campania Roccamonfina IGP 2013

      “Cecubo” Rosso Campania Roccamonfina IGP 2013

      Cecubo is a historical cuvée of Abbuoto, Primitivo and Piedirosso, which was already highly appreciated by the ancient Romans. In the expressive bouquet nuances of wild berries, figs, vanilla and incense. The full-bodied taste and the medium-weight body offer an interesting interplay between elegance and strength. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Good full ruby. Ripe plum, blueberry jelly and sweet spices on the inviting nose. Then sweet, ripe and fruity. Finishes long and juicy with hints of tar and licorice. Seems like there’s a hint of residual sugar here, but maybe it’s just the very ripe fruit. Offers plenty of early appeal already and I’d drink this up quickly." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "A blend of Primitivo and Piedirosso, the 2013 Cecubo is a dark and plummy red wine with thick textural richness, firm structure and a full-bodied approach. This wine possesses power and luscious fruit layers that drive it over the palate." Robert Parker

      “Tenute di Altavilla” Taurasi DOCG 2014

      Taurasi 2014 by Villa Matilde pampers the senses with fresh rose fragrance, spices, red berries, mint and liquorice. Also on the palate, light, soft aromas caress the palate, while the wilder, impetuous side of the Aglianico grape is reserved. It is a particularly silky, fragrant Taurasi, immediate and attractive - with great potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    About the winemakers
    Villa Matilde
    Campania
    Villa Matilde

    Severus, fortis, ardens: With these qualities (in English: serious, energetic and fervent) the ancient Falerner, the most famous wine of classical literature, was provided in Latin. The Villa Matilde continues the ancient tradition of the wine that disappeared at the beginning of the last century, not only since the seventies with a modern Falerno, but produces from the mountain area Alto Casertano via Sannio around the provincial town of Benevento to Irpinien many other noble wines of outstanding quality. The Campanian winery in Cellole was founded in the sixties by Francesco Paolo Avallone, a lawyer and lover of antique wines inspired by poets such as Vergil and Horaz. The winery is not only one of the pioneers, but also one of the most interesting wineries in the Caserta region. Love for tradition, respect for the environment, openness to modern developments and technological innovations - these could be the leitmotifs of Villa Matilde and the heirs of the company founder, Maria Ida and Salvatore Avallone, who are endowed with a feverish desire for renewal.

    With the acquisition of the Rocca dei Leoni estate in Sannio (2000) and the Altavilla estate in Irpinia (2004), Villa Matilde has developed into a large company with a very varied and wide range of products based on the native varieties Falanghina, Aglianico, Piedirosso, Primitivo, Fiano and Greco. Wine is the subject of ongoing studies at the estate to identify the grape varieties from which the oldest wines in the world were made. The wines vinified there are pleasing due to a very good price/performance ratio. And also the basic wines convince by their longevity and expressiveness.

    In 2008, the International Year of Planet Earth, Villa Matilde launched the project "Issue zero" was brought to life. This extensive sustainability project aims to gradually reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero and to produce wine in a particularly environmentally friendly way. The project covers the entire farm through a variety of measures, from work in the vineyard and cellar to distribution. Collected water is already used today to irrigate and clean the winery. Biomass produced during operation is also reused. In addition to the use of heat-insulating materials, the winery also uses natural ventilation systems to reduce energy consumption. Villa Matilde uses a combination system of photovoltaics and conventional power sources. SUPERIORE.DE

    "It is largely thanks to the Avallone family and their 50 years of work at Villa Matilde that the Falerno has gone from a historical curiosity to a living, modern plant. ... Villa Matilde is much more than the mother company of the modern Falerno."Gambero Rosso
