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...

Umbria, ItalyFalesco's Riccardo Cotarella earned admiration for Montiano, his single-vineyard Merlot, and thatimprint of precision is felt in his value wines such as Tellus. Latin for Earth, Tellus serves toreference our place in the world and beyond. Labels for the Tellus line were created during acrowdsourcing contest in 2008. At this event in Rome, painters were paired with passionate winelovers to translate the crowd's wine impressions into visual form.Tellus Chardonnay is sourced from five hectares in the Montecchio vineyards located in Umbria.Soils here are crumbly, sedimentary soils sitting at 250 meters above sea level. After an early September harvest, the Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel with 12 days of skin contact during maceration. Further refining in stainless for three months captures the fresh fruit flavors.Expect crisp citrus and orchard fruits to define the aromas and palate.Enjoy Falesco Tellus Chardonnay with roast chicken, grilled seafood quinoa, farro and wild rice.
