Supple, satisfying, unique.
The Falernia estate is located in the northernmost viticultural region of Chile, in the Elqui Valley and they produce what is my first ever taste of Sangiovese from Chile. Tuscany's red grape shows power here, with smoked strawberry, cedar chips, dried rose petals, tobacco, leather, star anise and vanilla. It has a fleshy fruit, supple weight and flavours to mimic the nose; chalky cocoa tannins line the palate. An interesting wine, pleasing and satisfying.
