Buy Falesco Ferentano
Wine Advocate 91 points - I’m a huge fan of Falesco’s Ferentano although I am aware that this is a white wine that will not appeal to everyone. The 2012 Ferentano is a pure expression of the little-known Roscetto grape (with thick skins) that is native to southern Umbria and Lazio. The wine offers slightly oxidized aromas of dried peach and caramel followed by pine nut, stone fruit and honeydew melon. In the mouth, Ferentano presents soft and enduring creaminess. I think it’s just terrific. Some 20,000 bottles are produced. 91+ Points (Sep 2015)

Wine maker notes
This wine is made from 100% Roscetto, an ancient variety indigenous to the Montefiascone region of Latium which Riccardo Cotarella has single-handedly saved from extinction. This grape’s small, compact bunches are naturally high in flavor, which Cotarella discovered was best extracted by the use of dry ice during maceration, allowing for maximum flavor without adding color. The resulting wine is unforgettably substantial and elegant.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with hearty risottos, bechamel sauces, roasted game, and baba ghanoush.

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.
