MERCHANTS OF FINE AND RARE WINES FROM AROUND THE WORLD SINCE 1995

The Wines About Us

Falcon Vintners Ltd was established in 1995 and is a wine company specializing in supplying its clients with some of the world’s best fine and rare wines. Falcon is a stock holder and holds a wide selection of wines from all over Europe and the New World, but has a particularly extensive selection of Italian wine.

The 2017 Barolo is gracious, perfumed and very nicely lifted. An effusive, floral bouquet opens first, followed by a rush of red berry fruit. Nervous, a bit wiry at this stage, the 2017 is going to need at least a few years to fully open, but all the elements are in place to allow that to happen. Maria Teresa Mascarello’s Barolo is one of the most elegant and restrained wines of the year. It’s not an immediately impressive or captivating wine at this stage. The purity of the flavors is just striking, though. Give it a few years to blossom. [Antonio Galloni, 11/02/2021]

Ca d’Morissio, named in honor of Mauro’s Grandfather Maurizio, was created from replanted vines in the Monprivato vineyard in the 1980s using the much revered Michet clone of Nebbiolo and produces around 4000 bottles per year. The wine is made only in the best vintages since 1993 and the latest release, the 2013, is a magical wine. Intensely aromatic, pure and classically structured, the wine will need a decade or so of cellaring and is destined to become a classic.

On the edge of the Chianti Classico appellation you have the Felsina estate best known for its supple, aromatic Super Tuscan wine Fontallaro, and the spicy, intense Rancia Chianti Classico Riserva both of which have been scored in the high 90’s for the 2018 vintage by Antonio Galloni.

A small thank you to a few clients last night. Bartolo 67 and Oddero 64 were the stand outs but all wines show really well. Oddero 67 also great and Teroldego still youthful. Perfect provenance. #finewine #barolo #barololovers #bartolomascarello ...

Spending a couple of hours with Aldo Vacca of Produttori del Barbaresco is such a pleasure and education. I have learnt more about about Piedmont from this man over the years than anyone else. Grazie Aldo. #barbaresco #finewine #italianwine ...

Nice new arrival. Monte Especiales from 2017. Just love long thinnies. Can’t wait to get stuck in. #habanos #cigars #cigarlover ...

This bottle absolutely sang. Wonderful ripe, vibrant fruit and brilliant mouthfeel. At its peak and very sad that it’s my last bottle. #finewine #tuscanwine #supertuscan ...

And just like that the weekend rolls around…..the philosophy we are adhering to this weekend is go large or larger! We have a selection of fine and rare magnums as well as double magnums, appropriate for any party/get together/or special occasion. 

Our choice of Magnum for the weekend is the 2000 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte! You may have seen from earlier posts that Eric was in Italy recently sourcing wines from a very exciting private cellar and this certainly caught our eye!  

The 2000 Le Pergole Torte is bright, fresh and lifted, with surprisingly mid-weight structure and lovely overall balance. The 2000 is a delicate, polished Pergole Torte with terrific balance and a real sense of sensuality. Given the warm vintage, this is a surprisingly delicate wine. A bit fragile and fading, the 2000 is a wine to drink over the next few years as there is nothing to be gained by waiting. So, what are you waiting for head over to the website now for your Mags and double mags!

When we’re not drinking wine we are reading about wine, and sometimes just sometimes we are doing both, and as we look out to grey stormy clouds we think we might just stay here with this Pinot Nero!

Pinot Nero is often over looked by the other wines of Piedmont but we personally cant get enough of Italian Pinot Noir! The Gian Luca Colombo 2019 is a stunning example of Pinot Nero where the grapes are are carefully selected and hand-harvested. A long maceration period of up to 35 days skin contact and spontaneous fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is aged for 12 months big oak barrel and clay. The wine is then bottled and only released after a minimum of 6 months of refinement resulting in a serious wine. There is an abundance of red fruit on the nose mixed in with earthy mushrooms, the palate has a chalkiness to it and those earthy notes are perfectly complimented by dark cherry and raspberry, the tannins are present but not over powering with a medium to long finish making this a perfect drinking wine to dive into a great book with!

Reminiscing on my birth year Chateau Rauzan-Ségla! Not only am I a total sucker for a left bank but 1990 was also a great year, so it’s safe to say I always enjoy opening my birth year vintage!

A complex nose of subtle menthol intermixed with black currants, cherries, spice box, cedar, and herbs emerges from this fully mature 1990. It is a fleshy, round, generously endowed Margaux with silky tannins, low acidity, and beautiful purity.

Why not purchase a mixed case of your birth year or as a gift for younger children! Head over to the website now to see what gems were produced the year you were born!

An auction is happening this week for a wonderful cause and something very close to our hearts that we wanted to give our followers the chance to be involved with, link in bio.

The auction is open for bidding and will close at 23:59 on Thursday 7th October. There are 73 auction lots from many of the world's best fine wine estates & spirit distilleries. The charity auction is available for bidding through an eCatalogue using WPA technology that can be accessed here:

https://catalogue.liquidicons.com - link in bio

The auction is unique in that every lot contains either large formats or rarities from top wine estates or distilleries globally, PLUS a 'money can't buy' experience such as VIP tour, tasting, lunch or dinner with the owners and stay at the winery or distillery. Additionally, every winner will be able to take advantage of promotional rates if they wish to fly by private jet through the Golden Vines Official Private Jet Sponsor, VistaJet, or commercial, through the Golden Vines Official Airline Sponsor, Virgin Atlantic.

The estimate on the lots range from only a few thousand pounds up to £150,000+. The 'experience element' of each lot can be shared among a group of friends, colleagues or clients, making these incredible experiences very affordable.

All proceeds will go to the Gerard Basset Foundation, a UK registered charity (charity number: 1193020), whose trustees are Nina Basset (Gerard Basset's widow), Romane Basset (Gerard's son), Lewis Chester DipWSET, Ian Harris MBE (CEO of WSET) and Jancis Robinson OBE MW.

The Foundation will utilise the proceeds to fund diversity & inclusion wine education programmes globally, including the headline Golden Vines Diversity Scholarships worth £55,000 each to a black or ethnic minority student wishing to undertake the Master of Wine or Master Sommelier programmes. We have received 23 applications for funding from institutional and community partners globally, including from USA, Canada, UK, France, Ghana, South Africa and Australia.

01st of October can only mean one thing….Fall is upon us, as is Halloween!

So as the leaves turn bright yellow and contrasting blood orange we start to think about those spicy, intense red wines.

However as we think about the scares of Halloween we really do have to tell you that this season is far more scary than the 2017 Barolo vintage!

We know people have been apprehensive about this vintage, there have been many discussions in and out of the industry regarding the hot summer and lack of rain, but we wanted to reiterate that there are estates producing glorious, complex, very fruity, spicy wines from this vintage, which is just what we want this time of year.

So no tricks, we say just treat yourself to a 2017 Barolo!

For more information on this fantastic Barolo, please click the link in our bio or alternatively call us direct.
