The bouquet delights with floral accents, sparkling citrus notes and sun-drenched tropical fruit. Intense start. Very juicy, charmingly mineral and perfectly balanced, the delicate cuvée shows itself on the palate, with a rich body, refreshing fruit acidity and great facet richness.

Tiare Collio Ribolla Gialla DOC ~ Friulian specialty

Tiare Collio Ribolla Gialla

The Tiare Collio Ribolla Gialla DOC is a unique masterpiece from the indigenous vine Ribolla Gialla. Gialla is called yellow, and in a bright straw yellow also presents this Friulian specialty. Green aromas delight the nose – lots of gooseberry and a hint of mint create a fragrance of expressive freshness. The palate is dry, fresh and crunchy on, lively, harmonious and wonderfully supple. Everything flows into a fine, slightly sweet finale with a seemingly eternal echo. We fell in love with the first sip!

Falernia Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Elqui Valley ~ 92+P Steam Hammer

Falernia Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva

The Falernia Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Elqui Valley is one of the best red wines we know from South America! Cherry, cassis, blackberry, red paprika, black pepper, mocha, tobacco and cedar wood create a multi-faceted, warm, spicy and delicate bouquet of high fascination. On the palate, velvety tannins, a powerful body, juicy fruit and savoury spices inspire. The long finish combines red pepper and cassis with elegant toasted notes.

Spectacular 92P Cabernet Sauvignon from spectacular landscape

Similarly spectacular as the wine itself is its origin. The dry Elqui Valley, located near the Atacama Desert, is an “extreme” challenge for winegrowers, but the effort is worthwhile. With a lot of courage, dedication, passion and skill, the Gramola family, who immigrated from Italy about seventy years ago, has developed their Viña Falernia into a world-renowned premium winery. The 2015 vintage of the Falernia Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is the most recent proof of their extraordinary mastery. We pull the hat – and 92+ BELViNi points!
