Riccardo Cotarella consults with dozens of Italian wineries, and has a reputation for excellence in vineyard operations, modern winemaking techniques and wine marketing. His greatest pride, though are the wines "made under the Falesco label from grapes grown in the family's vineyards in the Umbria and Lazio regions of central Italy." Falesco's winemaker Cotarella has been called a "pioneer in the Italian wine industry" because of "his expertise is in every aspect of the business from growing techniques, to technological innovations, to winemaking to marketing." Cotarella is assisted by winemaker Pier Paolo Chiasso.
Falesco does not utilize heavily planted, traditional Italian grape varieties such as Canaiolo and Trebbiano in its higher-quality wines. Although these varieties produce excellent yields, the winery maintains that the quality of the wines made from those varieties are not great. Breaking with Italian tradition, "they planted the best clones of Merlot available" to produce a wine they call "Montiano". Wine writer Lawrence Osborne has called Montiano a "globally significant wine."
Next, they bought a large hillside vineyard south of Orvieto which is planted in Cabernet Sauvignon. From these vines, they produce their wine called "Marciliano".
The winery also produces a distinctive local white wine called Est! Est!! Est!!! di Montefiascone. This wine is "composed of 60 percent Trebbiano 30 percent Malvasia and 10 percent Roscetto", and is considered a "generic Umbrian cheap white known around the world."
They sell a white wine made from the roscetto grape is called "Ferentano".
Another of their offerings is a sweet wine called Aleatico di Gradoli.
Falesco has two product lines based on terroir. The “Latium line” comprises wines from Montefiascone in the Viterbo province in Latium, and the “Umbria line” comprises wines produced in the Montecchio and Orvieto area.
