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.

  • Falesco Merlot Dell Umbria 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Light and delicate red fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry with some earthiness. Showing a brightness to start, more elegant red cherry and raspberry, some plum and a touch of tart cranberry on the finish. A very direct, easy drinking wine with few frills, this is pleasing and pleasant.88 pts Read More

  • October is National Pasta Month. And of all the Italian culinary products, ... ... with this pasta dish. Try Falesco Est! Est!! Est!!! or Casale Del Giglio’s Satrico, a blend of Trebbiano and Chardonnay. If you lean toward a red, search out a fresh aromatic, dry, young Cesanese from Piglio, Affile or Olevano Romano. If you want to be bold, go ... Read More

  • Vitiano Bianco Verdicchio Vermentino Umbria IGT 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon and honeydew melon aromas. Honeyed palate with toasted almonds, lemon, green bell pepper, cut grass and stone fruits like pear and green apple. Theres good balance between the alcohol and acidity, and its the green note that makes this wine more interesting than a lot of others. Read More

    Wine review by Giorgio


  • Falesco Montiano 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Al naso rivela profumi delicatamente speziati con note di rabarbaro. Un vino dal colore viola-prugna profondo. Un vino complesso che ben si sposa alla barrique. Un vino che spicca per i suoi morbidi tannini che equilibriano il suo elevato grado alcolico, 14,5. Al gusto molto equilibrato, intense percezioni di ribes rosso, amarena e china. Lunga ...

  • Vitiano Bianco Verdicchio Vermentino Umbria IGT 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lime leaf and lemons show up on the fruity yet restrained nose along with some light mineral and pollen floral notes. Lively on the palate, there's just a hint of flesh here wrapping up the energetic acids that support the simple citrus and white peach flavors here. Ending with a lovely hint of almond and pithy citrusy flavors on the modest fin... Read More

  • Falesco Vitiano Bianco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Nice little Italian white blend of vermentino and verdicchio. Easy drinking, light and crisp with some light lemon, a touch of apricot, medium acidity and a short finish. This is a food friendly wine that went well with our chicken and dumplin's. Read More
