External Reviews for Falesco Ferentano Lazio IGT
A pure expression of the little-known Roscetto grape skillfully worked by the talented Cotarella brothers. Intense peach, pineapple, toasted nuts and a playful hint of aged Parmigiano cheese rind. Good length and depth on the body and perfectly integrated acidity.

A knock-out white, the 2003 Ferentano (100% Rochetto) went through malolactic, and spent time in barrel before bottling. It exhibits wonderful notes of almond paste, orange rind, and buttery citrus in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively format with irrefutable soul and character. It should be drunk over the next year.
A tasty white, with baked apple, floral and light honey tones. Medium-bodied, with a fresh, lightly spiced palate and a clean finish. Drink now.
The newest addition to this portfolio is the 2005 Ferentano IGT. Produced from the indigenous Roscetto varietal, it was fermented in both stainless steel and barrels, was put through full malolactic, and was given a minimal clarification prior to bottling. It begins slowly aromatically, but builds intensity in the mouth revealing a tremendous, full-bodied, layered, honey character reminiscent of a southern Rhone blend of Roussanne, Viognier, and Marsanne. It could be served with meat dishes given its full body and intensity. This noteworthy value represents a remarkable achievement for this estate.
Produced from the indigenous and little-known Roscetto varietal, this white wine begins slowly and aromatically. Then it starts to build intensity in the mouth, revealing a tremendous, layered, and honeyed character reminiscent of a southern Rhône blend.
The hillsides around Montefiascone, from where comes the more well-known Est! Est! Est! and, nearby, the better-known Orvieto, are home to Ferentano, another triumph of Italian winemaker Riccardo Cotarella. Produced from 100% Trebbiano Giallo (locally Roscetto), so named for the golden color of its juice, this wine is sunshine in the glass! Cold maceration and partial fermentation in stainless steel preserve its ripe golden pineapple and tangerine flavors, while final fermentation and three months of aging in barrique add weight, a rich mouthfeel and subtle hints of almond and vanilla. Bright but balanced acidity harmonizes the whole, and the finish is long and luscious. Toss some pasta with pancetta, asparagus and smoked mozzarella and let the sun shine in!
