Falesco was founded by two of Italy’s most acclaimed winemakers, brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, in 1979. Their philosophy is focused on balancing the uniqueness and tradition of native varietals with the versatility of international grapes, including Merlot.

Falesco's top cuvee is the stunning Montiano, a 100% barrique-aged Merlot of which the 1995 vintage won Gambero Rosso's (Italy's leading wine guide) prestigious tre bicchieri (three glasses) award.

“The 1995 Montiano (1000 cases produced) is stunning…this unfined/unfiltered, profoundly rich red wine is a knock-out… the nose offers up glorious aromas of smoked meats, cassis, chocolate, and vanillin. Spectacular richness, combined with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, and wood, make for an opulently-textured, multi-layered, stunningly proportioned wine of exceptional purity and richness. With marvelous intensity, but no sense of heaviness.”
