In 1979, the brothers Renzo and Riccardo Cotarella found the Wine Company Falesco in Montefiascone, in northern Latium, with the aim of recovering the old vine varieties in that area.
After many years of experimentation and study on the Roscetto vine variety, the production of Poggio dei Gelsi starts in 1989 It is a selection of EST!EST!!EST!!! which has given back its luster to a territory and a wine which had been unjustly forgotten.
In order to demonstrate the quality of the company's land in 1990, the brothers drew attention to red grapes, in particular, Merlot. Thus was born Montiano, Italy’s most innovative red wine. On this their research does not stop today. The Falesco winery is located in Umbria, in the municipality of Montecchio, bordering Lazio.
The vineyards are located on the border between Lazio and Umbria, from Lake Bolsena to the slopes around Orvieto. Partially volcanic, partially sedimentary soils of origin are particularly suitable for growing vines with centuries-old traditions. In the process from growing grapes to wine production, Falesco uses innovative technologies, which is, in their opinion, essential for the revitalization of local winemaking traditions. Constant attention to the needs of the Italian and international markets encourages the company to develop effective marketing strategies and create modern wines that consumers like.
