The Cotarella family name is intrinsically linked to some of Italy’s finest wines: Riccardo Cotarella is one of the country’s most revered winemaking consultants, and his brother Renzo is the longstanding chief winemaker at Antinori. Following the lead of their parents, who built their own winery in the 1960s to vinify the grapes from their vineyards in Umbria, the brothers founded the Falesco winery in Lazio in 1979. Here the focus was on showcasing forgotten varieties that had fallen from favour, with the notable launch of Poggio dei Gelsi Est! Est!! Est!!! in 1989, which used the local Roscetto grape to great effect.
