Falesco Merlot Umbria IGT Pesano 2008
Faelsco have always paid attention to Merlot and are convinced that few other territories can allow this variety to express its full potential. They are able to achieve rich grapes from the best vineyards on the hills around Orvieto, where the exposure and setting, together with the soil, are fundamental for their perfect ripening. Through an appropriate vinification technique all this results in wines with great structure and a varietal character. Falesco Merlot, which is aged for six months in small French oak barrels, has a very deep colour. The scents are wide, rich, soft and spicy and the aromas are noble, well balanced and harmonious with an extremely long lingering finish.
The nose showed savory mushroom a bit floral with licorice. On the palate, I found raspberry and sour cherry with a medium finish. Not bad for the price.
