Wine maker notes
The fruit is air dried in a special room to facilitate the development of Botrytis (noble rot) so that by press time 45% to 60% of the bunches have been affected. The fermentation takes place in “neutral” 500 liter tonneaux (fifth pass), the same barrels in which the wine remains to age on its lees for a further 12 months.

Food pairing
Pair with creme brulee, pear tart, or lemon cake.

Producer
Two of Italy’s most acclaimed winemakers, brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, founded Falesco in 1979. Their philosophy is focused on balancing the uniqueness and tradition of native varietals with the versatility of international grapes. The result is a complete portfolio of wines that consumers and critics alike have recognized as exhibiting extreme value and Best of Class offerings. Falesco winery is located in Umbria’s Montecchio municipality, near Orvieto in the southwestern area that borders the Lazio region. In Lazio, Falesco also maintains a cellar for the vinification of its DOC Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone. The region is bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the west and Italy’s mountainous center to the east. The dry, perfectly drained, volcanic terroir offers ideal growing conditions for textured reds and crisp, refreshing whites. The winery’s mission is manifold: to rediscover and promote Italy’s native varietals; to identify terroir areas with the ability to produce high-quality wines; to perform ongoing research and experimentation in winemaking and vineyard management; and to continually improve the quality of all Falesco products. Countless worldwide accolades and the winery’s commercial success attest to the results achieved here.
