Falesco Marciliano 2014

Falesco has established its reputation by exploring not only the uniqueness and tradition of native varieties but also the versatility of international grape varieties in new terroirs. Accordingly, Marciliano is a classic blend of estate-grown Cabernets. To achieve extraordinary depth and concentration, the juice undergoes a lengthy period of maceration followed by sixteen months in oak resulting in exquisite complexity and refinement. The final wine is one of the greatest expressions of central Italian Cabernet.

Tasting Notes

Deep opaque purple in color, this delicious red offers classic aromas of cassis, herbs, tobacco, cedar, and slate, which continue to unfold on the palate. Structurally, the wine strikes a perfect balance between the firm, fine tannins and the elegant, velvety mouthfeel. These factors coalesce to make a long-lived and full-bodied red wine. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled steak, demi-glaces, brisket, and Moroccan lamb tagines.
