Falchini

Falchini’s first vineyard was planted in 1968 near San Gimignano, “City of the Beautiful Towers”, one of the most enchanting cities in Tuscany. The vines here grow in some of the most favourable soil in the area. They produce the region’s finest Vernaccia di San Gimignano wines, top Chianti Colli Senesi, and gold medal winning Sangiovese and Cabernet “Super Tuscans”.

In Falchini’s “Paretaio”, you can observe how the winery makes prudent use of barrique aging to enhance the best characteristics of carefully-selected Sangiovese. The result is an elegant, harmonious wine with a  balanced, velvety palate. It is produced from grapes grown in the Paretaio vineyard in San Gimignano, around 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot. The wine spent 12 months in small French oak barrels, then 12 months in bottle prior to release.

While Falchini’s approach nods to the Super Tuscan model, the result is neither over-ripe nor overblown. This is classic Sangiovese: animal, leather, and tobacco on the nose, with elegant mouth-filling cherry on the palate and lifted acidity. A late note of licorice continues through the finish. The Merlot rounds out the palate and deepens the cherry core. This is a classic, beautifully-structured wine that should appeal to those who enjoy quality Chianti and Vino Nobile. It also happens to be a steal!
