||30% Montepulciano, 70% Uva di Troia
||Maceration and colour extraction are carried out in stainless steel for 15 days with frequent pump-overs and delestage, to obtain at the same time better extraction and softer tannins.
||The wine ages for 14 months, 50% in 30 hl French oak casks -50% in 225 litre French oak barriques. A further year in the bottle before release allows the development of Il Falcone’s elegance and complexity.
||Its dense texture, complemented by barrel and bottle ageing, makes this wine the ideal complement to highly-seasoned dishes, such as full flavoured red meat, roasts, game, and meats with hearty sauces. Serve at cool room temperature, uncorking the bottle a half hour beforehand, or decanting the contents into a carafe to allow the wine to breathe.
