Two of Italy”s most acclaimed winemakers, brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, founded Falesco in 1979.

The result is a complete portfolio of wines that consumers and critics alike have recognized as exhibiting extreme value and Best of Class offerings.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Montiano sports a new design and front label that is cleaner and minimalist in personality. That doesn't change the fact that this is one of the most historic Merlot-based wines in Italy that put Lazio wines on the map. Riccardo Cotarella had set his sights on great Merlot from his home turf, that lies on the Lazio and Umbria border in central Italy. This vintage is especially plump and opulent and signals a slight evolution in the winemaking style of this historic wine. It feels more elegant and streamlined thanks to the purity of its aromas. Black cherry, blackberry, Indian spice, dark chocolate and pressed rose petal come together in seamless fashion.
Wine SpectatorMedium- to full-bodied and well-knit, with an expressive mix of leather, plumped currant, sandalwood, cocoa powder and underbrush notes, framed by supple tannins that show good grip on the aromatic finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2026. 4,100 cases made.
