Falesco Vitiano Umbria IGT 2013 750ML    
Sku: 21384

Falesco was founded in 1979 by Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, brothers that also happen to be two of Italy's most acclaimed winemakers. Their philosophy is to strike a balance between the uniqueness of native Italian varieties and the versatility of more "international" grapes. As evidenced by the enormous popularity of their wine and the countless worldwide accolades they have received, they have clearly succeeded in achieving their goal. Salute!

Tasting notes
Deep ruby-red in color with concentrated notes of blackcherry jam, licorice and tobacco leaf. This versatile wine pairs well with a wide array of food.

Technical notes
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese are the varieties making up this wine. The vinification process, which takes place at different times depending on the varieties, includes a long maceration, a lot of pumping-over and hand pressing. The malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques after blending the wines coming from 3 different varieties.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Country: Italy
Region: Umbria
Grape Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon,Merlot,Sangiovese
Type: Still wine

Review:
Just tasted my first bottle of the '08 with pasta and pesto. Very fruit forward, nicely integrated flavors, and a remarkably long finish. Very little tannin here, so this won't stand up to heavier fare. But it's great with pasta or chicken, and you'd be hard pressed to find a better bottle of wine for under 10 bucks.

A very nice Tuscan blend. Good fruit and complexity, with surprising length and a very pleasant aftertaste. An absolute steal and completely unbeatable at under $8.

Review:
This is a nice red blend full of softness without any bitter tannins. Perfect to open and drink with cheese and crackers and as a nightly wine as it's a great value at the price point. However, doesn't have the intensity and depth to do well with a complex meal. I know of a high end restauranteur who is a wine connoisseur who carries this in his wine cellar as he thinks it's a best buy. Great value wine!
