The vineyards where d’Amico produces its Chardonnay grapes are located in the north of Rome, close to the border with Umbria, at an altitude of about 400 mt and enjoy the gentle climate of Central Italy. The combination of the climatic features with the clayey, moderately fertile volcanic and limestone-rich soil, make this location unique. At harvest, the grapes are picked manually and placed into boxes in order to be taken directly to the stalk remover. After the pressing and the cold settling, the limpid must is fermented in new French oak barrels where it ages for 9 months and settles in bottles for about 5 months.

Golden yellow with amber undertones, Falesia has an intense and complex scent where the aroma of ripe fruit is elegantly blended with notes of butter and vanilla. On the palate it is smooth and well-balanced with a harmonic finish. Well suited for starter, rice, and with shellfish, fish, and white meat with mild sauces and fresh cheese, the Falesia is a wonderfully versatile Chardonnay.
