The ‘Pian Scorrone’ Barbera from Il Falchetto is a great introduction to this fine estate and this Italian variety. It is youthful, rich and intense with vibrant red fruit flavours with notes of blackberry and exotic spice. There is a lovely velvety texture and the flavours linger nicely. The balance and ripeness of the tannins is also impressive, particularly for a wine at this price. This is a seriously enjoyable wine to drink over the next two to three years.
We are delighted to be offering the wines of Il Falchetto in Piemonte. The estate is owned by the Forno family, whose long history in Santo Stefano Belbo is documented as early as the mid-1600’s. For the last four generations they have been a family of winegrowers and winemakers, devoted to the vine and to wine. Pietro Forno began producing Moscato in 1940 and at the end of the 70s Pietro passed the reins to his children Natalino and Luigi, who renewed the cellar and invested in new equipment. They worked hard improving and honing techniques, always with the maximum respect for tradition and their land.
Today the Il Falchetto Estate is proudly managed by brothers Giorgio, Fabrizio and Adriano Forno and includes vineyards in both Cuneo and Asti provinces, in which nine different varieties are cultivated, though the focus and highlight is their world class Barbera. The philosophy is to produce only top quality wines that respect and express the very best that each individual vineyard can produce.
