Wine Advocate 92 points - Riccardo Cotarella’s 2009 Merlot Montiano is the clear highlight in this set of new releases. Mocha, espresso, sweet spices and plums flesh out beautifully in the glass. There is an element of floral lift and freshness that is highly intriguing. The balance of fruit, structure and oak is striking. Textured, harmonious and inviting, the Montiano is absolutely gorgeous today. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. It’s hard to believe 30 years have passed at Falesco, but they have. ” (Feb 2013)

Wine maker notes
A 100% single-vineyard Merlot grown in the Montiano parcel in Montefiascone, Lazio. The volcanic, mineral-rich soil of the Montiano vineyard and a rigorous hand selection of these grapes contribute to Montiano’s solid structure and concentration. One of the most sought-after wines from central Italy, this is a perennial favorite of red wine collectors worldwide!

Food pairing
Pairs brilliantly with cassoulet or hearty casseroles, smoked beef or cured sausages, and roasted lamb with mint sauce.

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.
