This impressive red is a blend of Barbera and Merlot from a vineyard known as Agliano Terme in the Monferrato region of Piemonte. It is a beautifully balanced wine with damson and ripe bramble fruit flavours and complex notes of exotic spice. This is powerful and full-bodied with a long, lush finish. It also has the structure and intensity to age for up to 10 years – if you can resist!
Tenuta Il Falchetto
We are delighted to be offering the wines of Il Falchetto, from Santo Stefano Belbo in Piemonte. The estate is east of Alba close to the border of the Langhe and Monferrato regions. It is owned by the Forno family, whose long history here began in 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.
