Pure, round, and fresh with fragrances of berries and spices. Plum and cherry fruit rush the palate with well-balanced oak notes and a satisfying finish.
The southern part of Tuscany bordering onto Latium also has a rich wine-growing tradition reaching back to the Etruscans and beyond. Several years ago Rainer Loacker acquired a very promising wine estate in the heart of old Etruria in the province of Grosseto: Valdifalco. It is located between Alberese and Collecchio in the commune of Magliano in Toscana. The name meaning "Valley of the Falcon" alludes to the fact that the area was famous for falconry in medieval times.
The Valdifalco estate is located in a beautiful position among rolling hills where 12 hectares of vines were planted amidst olive groves in spring 2000. The climate here is distinctly Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and the area is protected from the sea by the hilly landscape of the "Uccellina". The soils provide an excellent prerequisites for quality wine production, being red and loamy with a high iron content, while the upper sites are characterized by marl.
Organic and delicious, Rosso del Falco is predominately Sangiovese with 10-15% Merlot.
