Falesco Montiano Trentanni 2009

The 2009 vintage is the first year in which the Trentanni was produced celebrating the 30th anniversary of Falesco's founding.  The wine is made from an even more specific selection of grapes from the winery's flagship Montiano vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color, aromas of red and black berries complement undertones of vanilla, sweet spices, and leather.  On the palate, its upfront power and body give way to a round, more elegant finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with barbecue, teriyaki sauces, Korean short ribs, and Pittsburgh-style Delmonico steaks.
