Santo Stefano Belbo is a small but important town in Piedmont’s Cuneo province.Nestled on the right bank of the Tanaro river, the 70% of the town’s territory is planted with vineyards. It is sandwiched between the two most important wine areas of the region Piedmont : Cuneo Province and Asti Province, which vineyards landscapes became Unesco world heritage from june 2014.
The Cuneo province is made up of long, gently sloping hills with nearly horizontal crests above sheer ravines, while the Asti province is is formed of softly rounded hills. Cool valley floors offer a magnificent contrast to the sun-kissed ridges. Both have sedimentary soil, with an underground tufa layer covered by an extremely friable surface with few rocks. The Tenuta il Falchetto Estate’s vineyards and wine cellar are on these hills.
It is a land of great aromas, the perfect growing area for Piedmont’s renowned grape varietals with their strong character and personality and their sweetness from the strong sun. The names alone are mouthwatering: Moscato, Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo, history, myth and legend.
