Wine Description

The Falesco Winery, owned by the brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, both oenologists and deeply rooted in this territory between Lazio and Umbria regions, was established in Montefi ascone (Lazio, Viterbo province) in 1979. Recently Falesco has enriched its property with the acquisition of the Marciliano estate, of 260 hectares, which is situated on a wonderful hill south of Orvieto in the municipality of Montecchio. This Vermentino / Verdicchio white blend has attractive grassy, nutty aromas. This is a crisp, savoury white; the palate is medium-bodied, quite round, and shows fine length.
