 Winemaker Notes

FALESCO Tellus Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Montecchio in the heart of Falesco’s estate in Umbria. Soils here are clay and calcareous, with a north-south exposition, sitting at 300 meters above sea level. Aromatics are fully developed with appropriate elevation while soils here produce a balanced Cabernet profile of moderate body, acidity and tannins.

Expect Cabernet Sauvignon to be firmer and more tannic than Merlot. Here, the climate is moderate but elevation is also important, so flavors lean to ripe black fruits and tell-tale herbaceous notes. Age in Stainless steel tanks


Food Pairing

Red and black fruits comingled with herbaceous elements brighten flavors of rich food, such as the obvious lamb, steak or burger. Echo the wine sensory experience of herbal notes with herb-seasoned dishes that feature thyme, rosemary or basil. Vegetables with a bitter edge such as broccoli rabe, radicchio, or brussel sprouts counteract the leafy, herbal notes of Cabernet.
