The harvest 2021 at Villa Matilde promises well thanks to quality-oriented agricultural practices and generally favorable climatic conditions. The 2021 vintage began with rather mild winter temperatures that lasted almost one degree above the seasonal averages until the beginning of March, with abundant rains. A good vegetative restart therefore took place, but in the first part of April there was a significant drop in temperatures, which led to a delay of about a week in the growth of the shoots. The persistence of temperatures just above average throughout May, June and the first half of July, and the prolonged absence of rain, slowed down the phytopathic pressure and allowed for good flowering and fruit set.In general, the climatic conditions have allowed a management of the vineyards without particular problems. The health of the grapes at harvest is exceptional and this is due to the absence of rains in the last two months before the harvest and consequently of mold. The harvest was postponed compared to 2020 to the second ten days of September starting with the sparkling wine bases, and ending in the first ten days of November with Aglianico del Taurasi. The quantities of grapes are slightly higher than in 2020 and the quality is in line with the company’s quality objectives, aimed at high-quality productions.

What The Critics Say...

Wine Enthusiast 91 point rating
The nose is delicate, but doesn’t lack subtlety, as the freshness of citrus blossoms and grapefruit mingles with drier aromas of tea leaves and cumin. That balance continues on the palate, where green apples play with camomile, while accelerating acid recalls the citrus of the nose. 91 Points Danielle Callegari, Wine Enthusiast
