Food Pairings for Falesco Est! Est! Est!!! di Montefiascone
According to legend, in the year 1111 Henry V of England happened to go through Montefiascone on his way to Rome where he was to be crowned by the Pope. Johann Defugger, a man particularly fond of wine, belonged to that party, too. In order to satisfy his passion, Defugger sent ahead his servant Martin, whose task was to look for the best wines all along the route to Rome. Every time he would find a noteworthy wine the servant was supposed to mark the place by the word EST which meant "There is good wine here" in the code they had agreed upon. When Martin arrived in Montefiascone he tasted such a good wine that he did not just write the usual EST on the inn's door but EST! EST!! EST!!! to underline its superior quality. The Falesco Winery, owned by the brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, both oenologists and deeply rooted in this territory between Lazio and Umbria regions. The EST! EST!! EST!!! Is made from Trebbiano, Malvasia and Roscetto grapes chosen from selected vineyards.This is a refreshing and summery Italian white made from interesting Italian grapes. It is quite floral and also full of fruit. It works well on its own before a meal or as an excellent pairing with most fish dishes.
