Falesco Sangiovese IGT 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Dunkles Rubinrot mti violetten Reflexen, in der Nase intensives Fruchtbukett nach reifen Kirschen und Erdbeeren, zarte würzige Komponenten, am Gaumen komplex mit herrlicher Beerenaromatik, sehr delikate, geschmeidige Tannine, elegante Textur mit geradliniger Sortencharakteristik, kraftvoll bis ins Finale, langer Nachhall.

The climatic and pedologic characteristics of this territory are similar. The hills stretching from Montefi ascone to Orvieto are partly volcanic partly sedimentary in origin and both kinds of soil are particularly suited to the growing of vines as witnessed by the century-old tradition of the zone. In his book The foreign varietals cultivated in Italy S. Mondini affirms that as early as the 19th century several foreign varietals were cultivated in Lazio, some in quite remarkable proportions and specialized in the vineyards... Cabernet, Carignane, Gamay, Grenache, Merlot, Malbeck, Pinot, Sauvignon, Syrah... Lazio generally proves to be an area where the advantages from the cultivation of the foreign varietals are remarkable, especially for what concerns the ones coming from France.. In the countryside surrounding Rome, Frosinone and Viterbo it’s widely held that they contribute to the improvement of the local wine production. Read less

Bright ruby-red in color with expressive aromas of ripe black cherries, strawberries and plums. Excellent balance on the palate, with soft tannins and slightly spicy notes on the finish. Whether paired with your favorite Italian dishes or enjoyed alone by the glass, this Sangiovese is a pure pleasure to drink.
