“This is one of Lazio’s most popular value wines and I often notice this distinctive bottle on trattoria and pizzeria tables around the city of Rome. The Falesco Famiglia Cotarella 2018 Syrah Tellus delivers softness, power, elegance and lots of varietal character. This is a soft Syrah that reveals distinct notes of dark fruit, spice and charred meat. This 2018 vintage is especially tangy and bright, and I cannot think of a better partner to a plate of bucatini all’amatriciana with the smoked bacon flavors of cubed guanciale and cracked black pepper. This value is outstanding.”

Monica Larner – Wine Advocate (91 pts)

The grapes and the vineyards: In order to obtain a wine that would best represent the great potential of the vineyard Lazio, we decided to focus our attention to the Syrah variety. The treatment of individual plants, with particular reference to the training system and to a limited production, allow us to obtain grapes of great balance, in terms of sugar, as well as phenolic.

The Vinification: Immediately after harvesting and the subsequent crushing of the grapes are taken to a pre-cold maceration for 4 or 5 days at a temperature of 18-20°C. This technique brings out the best feature of the natural freshness and fragrance of the fruit. Subsequently, the fermentation continues at a temperature of 25-27°C. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is placed in barriques for a period of 5 months, where the malolactic fermentation occurs.

The wine: A wine with an intense colour and violet reflections, on the nose its scent is enhanced by hints of fresh fruit, cherry with spicy notes that blend with great balance and elegance to those of sweet and vanilla expressed from the wood. The taste is enveloping, silky, soft tannins, rich and persistent finish.
