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 Livio Sassetti (Pertimali) vineyards are set on the stunning hillside of Montosoli, north of Montalcino, where the family have been making wine for over three generations. The good location combined with the passion, dedication to the land, understanding of the changing terroir, as well as it’s fruits has resulted in producing extremely complex yet gloriously elegant wines time and time again with the 2016 vintage proving exactly that receiving a score of 100 from James Suckling.

Elio Sandri makes uncompromising, pure, savoury wines with little intervention in the vineyard and winery at his property, Cascina Disa in Monforte. I’m often asked about new discoveries and upcoming stars from Piedmont and I truly believe that Elio is one that is close to the very top of that list. Try his wines and you will not be disappointed. We have a wide range of recent releases.

My tastings of Brunello 2016 back in October 2020, confirmed that this was a fantastic vintage.  The vibrancy and purity of the wines in general made them very appealing.  Montalcino, however, doesn’t come without it’s disappointments so one has to buy carefully.

Sometimes it’s nice to reminisce on our favourite wines we have tasted! Giacomo Borgogno e Figli is a historic estate in Barolo dating back to 1761.

We loved drinking this wine gradually throughout the evening, drinking it slowly letting it open up was a great idea, and we aren’t the only ones that think going slow is a good idea! The winemakers moto is “Being slow in one’s actions means having the time to understand things better and do them the right way. This is what we have been doing in our vineyards and with our wines since 1761”

Weekends are for good food and wine, and safe to say we live by this rule!

Giada is currently enjoying being back home in Italy and of course drinking great wines with what looks like truly delicious food, we are actually all very jealous of the photos she has been sending us.

The Cavallotto Nebbiolo 2017 has generous amounts of spice and cooked fruits on the nose. The palate is bright but opens up to plumb, leather, and subtle smokiness, over all a stunning wine with a medium to long finish, perfect for a lovely pasta ragu dish this weekend!

Did you know that Barolo found in the north of Piedmont was one of the first Italian wine regions to be granted DOCG status?

Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita is Italy’s highest level of wine classification, the wines not only coming from strictly demarcated zones (Origine) but passing an assessment tasting by a panel of experts to guarantee their authenticity (Garantita). And yet Barolo comes in many different styles and indeed qualities. One of most exciting and wonderful aspects of the Italian wine culture has to be the diversity and number of native grapes the country possess, which is rumoured to be in excess of 2,000 unique varieties spread across twenty regions.

This results in a wide range of glorious styles with intense flavour profiles and complexity levels, meaning there really is something to please everyone, as well as something new and exciting to try.

While we enjoy the last (the beginning) of this glorious summer weather, it only seems logical to stock the fridge with some crisp, dry, very quaffable whites.

The term “icon” is often abused in the wine world, a designation too hastily assigned to any estate which receives the slightest acclaim. But when it comes to the wines of Miani, the label doesn’t quite do justice to the profound wines from the estate.

Its Friday and we are already thinking about what to open this evening. So, if like us you are having a hard time deciding here is some inspiration.

To get our mouth-watering we start with a classic Blanc de Blanc from Pierre Peters, those endearing notes of almond and brioche are present on the nose, the palate is dominated by white flower fruits (lemon and pear) and floral notes (acacia). The finish is persistent with pure citrus flavours. Lovely minerality and purity here and real harmony between the linear acidity and subtle pithy bitter notes accompanying the citrus. Very fine.

We then move onto the 2010 Domaine Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet a rich and weighty wine bursting with ripe fruit and complimented with nuts and butter. The acidity is fair and a lengthy finish.

No line up is complete without Pinot Noir and this Pinot Noir has an incredible nose with dark fruits hitting you straight away with deep cherry, followed by smoked meat, toasted herbs and spice. The palate matches the nose perfectly with delicious rich fruit, and complex spice resulting in a powerful finish.

Finally, we have 200 Cheateau Ausone It possesses a deep purple colour as well as a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, wet stones, and wonderfully perfumed floral notes. When the wine hits the palate, it exhibits impressive purity, medium to full body, a multi-layered texture, and extraordinary precision and intensity with a finish just short of 50 seconds - Robert Parker.

This 1985 Pomerol from Château l'Eglise-Clinet is full-bodied, with a glorious richness that leaves a silky long finish that remains for an impressive amount of time.

It has an intense nose of blackberry, wild strawberry as well as black cherry, there is a delicate herbaceous tone with subtle notes of truffle as well.

It was an unforgettable bank holiday that was accompanied by an unforgettable wine that is a magnificent testament to a great winemaker.
