Montiano Falesco 99lm 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"mass of purple fruit with a spiced effusive voice by enormous power, a definitive champion, an archetype among reds, primarily due to its maximum extractive density: result of a delicious mashed grape pulp, by the sun slowly matured, juice-weeping and essentially distillate.

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. Read less
