Villa Matilde Falanghina Rocca dei Leoni 2018 750ml - Italy - Falanghina
The 2018 vintage was characterized by complex climatic conditions sometimes with almost tropical weather. A mild winter was followed by snow in early march which increased the humidity of environment. The rest of the spring was characterized by extreme heat peaks alternating with some rainfall especially in summer which created high humidity. In June the rains started to give a little respite, favoring a regular flowering and in a fairly short time. The month of August was marked by some brief afternoon thunderstorms maintaining very warm temperatures. Overall, the development of vegetation was fast, continuous and vigorous. The large temperature range has slowed down the maturation process, favoring the synthesis of primary aromas and secondary precursors and preserving very fresh acidity. This vintage shows grapes with excellent health.
Tasting Note - The wine has a pale straw yellow color. On the nose the aromas is intense, floral and fruity, with essences of banana, tropical fruits and white peach, while the flavor conquers your mouth thanks to its sapid note, balancing the aromatic bouquet. This is a delicious Falanghina, pleasantly fresh, crisp and light-bodied.
