Falesco Pomele 2016

With the help of his students from the University of Viterbo, renowned winemaker Riccardo Cotarella discovered that Aleatico, a red grape variety introduced to Italy from Greece, thrives in the volcanic soil found in the Lake Bolsena region of northern Lazio. Very low yields and a special cold maceration technique are used to preserve and intensify this grape's extraordinary and unique aromas.

Tasting Notes

Pomele is the ultimate red dessert wine. Bright ruby-red in color, this sweet red wine is brimming with fresh berry and plum aromas.  On the palate, a zesty, perfectly balanced acidity keeps the youthful profile lively and delicious.

Food Pairing

Best served with cherries jubilee, bananas Foster, crème brulée, or trés leches cake.
