Falesco has established its reputation by not only exploring the uniqueness and tradition of native varieties but also the versatility of international grape varieties in new 'terroirs'. Accordingly, Marciliano is a classic blend of estate-grown Cabernets. To achieve extraordinary depth and concentration, the juice undergoes a lengthy period of maceration followed by sixteen months in French and American oak, resulting in exquisite complexity and refinement. The final wine is one of the greatest expressions of central Italian Cabernet.

Tasting Notes

Deep, opaque purple in color, this delicious red offers classic aromas of cassis, herbs, tobacco, cedar and slate, which continue to unfold on the palate. Structurally, the wine strikes a perfect balance between the firm, fine tannins and the elegant, velvety mouthfeel. Long-lived and full-bodied. 

Food Pairing

Marciliano is best served with grilled steak, pot roasts, and balsamic grilled vegetables.
