The name "Tellus" refers to the Roman goddess of the earth. Made entirely from Syrah, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel followed by five months in second passage French and American oak. The final wine is yet another delicious masterpiece from Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella.

Intense ruby-red with violet reflections, the wine emits beautiful notes of ripe black cherry, violets and smokiness with just a hint of vanilla and sweet spice imparted by the brief aging in oak. On the palate, the wine is silky and rich, with soft tannins and a persistent finish.

The Syrah will pair beautifully with any beef, pork or game main courses.

We suggest you allow this wine to breathe for approximately one hour prior to serving.

Wine maker notes
The name Tellus refers to the Roman goddess of the earth. Made entirely from Syrah, the grapes for this wine were fermented in stainless steel followed by five months in second-passage French and American oak barrels. The resulting wine is yet another delicious masterpiece from Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with roasted leg of lamb, Espagnole sauces, beef Wellington, or venison and mushroom ravioli.

Producer
Two of Italy’s most acclaimed winemakers, brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, founded Falesco in 1979. Their philosophy is focused on balancing the uniqueness and tradition of native varietals with the versatility of international grapes. The result is a complete portfolio of wines that consumers and critics alike have recognized as exhibiting extreme value and Best of Class offerings. Falesco winery is located in Umbria’s Montecchio municipality, near Orvieto in the southwestern area that borders the Lazio region. In Lazio, Falesco also maintains a cellar for the vinification of its DOC Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone. The region is bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the west and Italy’s mountainous center to the east. The dry, perfectly drained, volcanic terroir offers ideal growing conditions for textured reds and crisp, refreshing whites. The winery’s mission is manifold: to rediscover and promote Italy’s native varietals; to identify terroir areas with the ability to produce high-quality wines; to perform ongoing research and experimentation in winemaking and vineyard management; and to continually improve the quality of all Falesco products. Countless worldwide accolades and the winery’s commercial success attest to the results achieved here.
