VINI FALEZZE DI LUCA ANSELMI
WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH
Here at Falezze, we are truly passionate about creating a limited edition of exclusive Valpolicella for those who love and appreciate the finest wines.
Our company has been run by the same family for three generations and its history dates back more than eighty-five years. It is located in the municipality of Illasi, in the Valle di Mezzane, in the production area of Valpolicella DOC (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin).
Our home and winery is surrounded by hazelnut and oak woods, olive groves and historic vineyards in a unique environment that is ideal for growing vines. Wine has always been made here, and still today we use traditional methods and respect the rhythms of nature and the seasons. From our home, and particularly from the terrace where we have our tastings, we look out over a vast, rolling landscape like no other. It extends all the way from the slopes of the Lessini mountains down to the Po valley.
AMARONE RISERVA 2012. Exclusive numbered edition with a different subject for each single bottle.
A project that came from an idea by Luca Anselmi and Sofia Kherkeladze, with the participation of Maestro Niko Kherkeladze.
A limited and numbered collection: 400 exclusive bottles, in presentation boxes made from ancient fir and pine wood recovered from old farmhouses in Trentino, combining the aura of memory with a close attention to sustainability.
Everything in the 2012 Amarone Riserva conveys a sense of great tradition and respect.
A return to the origins of the blend, with bunches of grapes selected from vines that are over 80 years old. A return to the idea of the inimitability of an artistic creation, because each bottle is a unique piece, each one with a different subject on the label.
A return for Niko Kherkeladze to his own artistic themes, in this case to his beloved equestrian subjects, which are appreciated the world over.
Sustainability means respecting the rhythms of nature without asking the vineyards to give more than they can.
You don’t go organic overnight. It’s a long journey that begins months, years even, before you obtain your certification. We’re reaching the final stages of this process at Falezze, which means that we have already been producing our wines for a long time in line with certain principles and specifications.
Ever since the first generation of the Anselmi family, we have worked in the vineyard to protect the environment, fully aware that our first duty is to respect and preserve our land. Luca Anselmi’s training in the field of biology and his specialisation in food issues have heightened this sensibility, enabling the company to transition towards organic in a well-pondered, meticulous manner.
Wine is not just a sophisticated sensory pleasure and a means of socialising: first and foremost, it is a nutrient and as such part of our well-being. This is why using advanced technology to eliminate any chemical intervention is key to the production of wines of true excellence.
WE GIVE MEANING TO THE CONCEPT OF SUSTAINABILITY
“I think of my wine as a work of art. A work created by the sensations it conveys and perfectly reflecting the landscape from which it emerges.”
