Falesco Merlot 2012


The Falesco estate was founded in 1979 by winemaker brothers Renzo and Riccardo Cotarella with the goal of recovering ancient vineyards located in the volcanic hills between Lazio and Umbria in central Italy. Today the family run estate is looking forward towards its 4th generation to continue the family’s philosophy of “a deep sense of belonging to the territory of origin and a scientific approach” along with a passion for rediscovering Italy’s indigenous varietals and creating quality wines.

Dark ruby-red in colour with aromas of red fruits, wildflowers and fennel. Light on its feet with soft raspberry and plum flavours merging into smooth tannins and earthy chocolate notes lingering deftly between each sip. Delightfully easy drinking, this is a versatile, crowd-pleasing Merlot.
