Description

Intense colour and violet reflections in the glass. The bouquet is enhanced by hints of fresh fruit, cherry with spicy notes that blend with great balance and elegance leading through to sweet vanilla expressed from the wood. The taste is enveloping, with silky, soft tannins, and a rich, persistent finish.

In order to obtain a wine that would best represent the great potential of the vineyard Lazio, the winemakers decided to focus their attention to the Syrah variety. The treatment of individual plants, with particular reference to the training system and to a limited production, allowed the grapes to obtain great balance, in terms of sugar, as well as phenolic.

Immediately after harvesting and the subsequent crushing of the grapes are taken to a pre-cold maceration for 4 or 5 days at a temperature of 18-20°C. This technique brings out the best feature of the natural freshness and fragrance of the fruit. Subsequently, the fermentation continues at a temperature of 25-27°C. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine is placed in barriques for a period of 5 months, where the malolactic fermentation occurs.

The image of Tellus has always been linked to the art world. The label, revisited with the 2009 vintage, was in fact born during an event held at Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome, during which a group of artists brought back the impressions of passionate tasters on canvas.

Fallesco's philosophy stems from a passion for viticulture and a strong sense of belonging to the territory of origin, which has pushed them for over thirty years to enhance their wine heritage and produce quality wines following a production philosophy focused on some key values.
