The area on which our vineyards extend, between Lake Bolsena in Lazio, and the town of Orvieto in Umbria, is a hilly area with similar climatic and soil conditions, as evidenced by the long winemaking traditions of these places particularly suitable for viticulture. If Orvieto, in fact, is known, since the most ancient times, as Oinarea, or "the city where wine flows," centuries ago, the Alto Lazio enjoyed of a reputation coming from the production of outstanding wines, exclusive of the papal or nobility's canteens, which has recently been rediscovered thanks to the work of development that led Falesco around microvarieties and old clones almost extinct in this region.
In the area of Montefiascone, in particular, the vineyards, planted on sandy soils, rich in volcanic lava, phosphorus and potassium, are exposed throughout the year to a mild, rainy winters and hot summers, important to record differences in temperature between day and night.
The area of Montecchio is instead characterized by very cold winters and very hot summers, partially mitigated by the presence of Corbara Lake, not far from our Estate in Umbria. The soil here is clay, calcareous, fertile enough and deep, rich in white pebbles and important micro-elements, such as ammonium phosphate, potassium, magnesium and boron.
