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

Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very well-integrated tannins and a clean aftertaste of vanilla and berry. Amazing quality for the money. Best after 2008.

Medium red. Vinous nose is redolent of red plum, strawberry and tea. Sexy, captivating flavors of strawberry and red cherry are both sweet and juicy. The smooth finish is only moderately long, but this is very easy to drink.

Falesco's 2008 Sangiovese is a flashy, opulent wine packed with succulent plums, cherries and spices. The Sangiovese spends four months in French oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. Riccardo Cotarella's wines at Falesco continue to deliver incredible value.

The 2006 Sangiovese is a rich, concentrated wine packed with jammy dark fruit. Made in an intense style, it offers plenty of up-front appeal if not much varietal character.

The 2007 Sangiovese is less convincing in its balance. It, too, is made in a rich, concentrated style, yet some uncharacteristic green notes lurk beneath. Impressive as this wine is for the sheer depth of its fruit, there isnrsquo;t a lot of varietal character here. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.

This 100% Sangiovese is intense and bright ruby red in color, with aromas of ripe cherry and strawberry The excellent balance between fruit and acidity, and the slightly spicy notes on the finish are the unmistakable hallmarks of this wine The soft and silky tannins frame the pleasant texture of this pure Sangiovese
