Our online feature this week is the 2021 Villa Matilde Falanghina Avallone (Campania, Italy) – $24.99 , regularly $29.99.

Francesco Paolo Avallone founded the Villa Matilde estate in the early 1960s. Nowadays, his son and daughter, Salvatore “Tani” and Maria Ida Avallone, continue their father’s legacy. The estate’s location, boasting volcanic, mineral-rich soils facing the Mediterranean sun and sea, sheltered on three sides by the Massico mountain range. Its vicinity to the sea combined with this mountainous ring means ideal ventilation, cool nights and warm days, and maximum sun exposure, right up to late October, all ideal for making fine wine. Over the decades, the estate is a leader in carbon footprints – impressively they have achieved zero greenhouse gas emissions on all their properties.

Our feature this week is their lovely Falanghina Avallone, really showcasing the terroir – this has steely tropical and stone fruits, with subtle florals and herbs while the palate is intense yet fresh finishing with fine acidity and a volcanic minerality. This is a classy white!
