Full, soft taste with fruit and subtle oak
|Italian oenologist Flessati gives freshness to the wine|

Red wine from Chile with the scent of caramel toffee and ripe red fruit. The taste is juicy and aromatic. Great wine to serve but also good to combine with cold dishes or dishes from the grill.
Red wine from Chile
A great carmenère! A wine that explains why this grape is now loved by so many wine lovers. Ripe, spicy and full-bodied in taste. The grapes come from high and cool vineyards where they are given time to reach full ripeness during a long growing season.
This keeps the grape freshness and intense ripe fruit aromas. And you can taste that in the wine. After fermentation, it is matured for four months, largely in tanks and about 30% in small casks made of American and French oak. The mix of both parts gives fruitiness with a refined wood dosage. Highly recommended.
Falernia the success of two Italians in Chile
Born in Trentino, Italy, Aldo Olivier started Viña Falernia in 1997 with his cousin and fellow countryman Giorgio Flessati. A special initiative because they manage the most northerly vineyards in Chile. These are located in the Elqui Valley near the city of La Serena, more than 500 kilometers north of Santiago.
One day later it turned out to be a very suitable region for producing aromatic and fresh wines. During the day it is warm but at night it cools down sharply due to the ocean wind from the west or cool mountain air from the Andes from the east. This gives the grapes an intense aroma and taste and they retain refreshing acidity.
The experienced Flessati saw fantastic opportunities for the vines already present - the grapes were used exclusively for pisco distilled grape wine - and became the first wine producer in this 'forgotten' region.
Falernia's wines have now become more famous and there is recognition for their excellent quality. Flessati even introduced the 'appassimento method', well-known in Northern Italy. Part of the harvest is dried so that the flavor concentration increases sharply. The addition of this part to fermenting red wine produces a significantly fuller and smoother taste.
