Falesco Assisi Rosso 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby in color, youthful aromas of red fruits and berries complement undertones of plums and cherries. On the palate, crisp acidity and smooth tannins make for an easy-to-drink, refreshing wine.

The climatic and pedologic characteristics of this territory are similar. The hills stretching from Montefi ascone to Orvieto are partly volcanic partly sedimentary in origin and both kinds of soil are particularly suited to the growing of vines as witnessed by the century-old tradition of the zone. In his book The foreign varietals cultivated in Italy S. Mondini affirms that as early as the 19th century several foreign varietals were cultivated in Lazio, some in quite remarkable proportions and specialized in the vineyards... Cabernet, Carignane, Gamay, Grenache, Merlot, Malbeck, Pinot, Sauvignon, Syrah... Lazio generally proves to be an area where the advantages from the cultivation of the foreign varietals are remarkable, especially for what concerns the ones coming from France.. In the countryside surrounding Rome, Frosinone and Viterbo it’s widely held that they contribute to the improvement of the local wine production. Read less

Falesco is the family winery of the Cotarella brothers, Renzo and Riccardo, both influential winemakers in their own right. This is their blend of sangiovese with merlot and cabernet, a red that’s full and plump in the middle, earthy on either side. It holds some elegance in its tannins, which are tarry without feeling aggressive. For roast duck.

A medium- to full-bodied version, with juicy acidity backing the ripe black plum fruit. Hints of tobacco and spice add range to the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

The 2010 Assisi Rosso shows terrific energy and verve. Dark cherries, herbs, smoke, new leather and licorice meld together in the glass. This is another terrific value from Falesco. The Assisi Rosso, a Sangiovese/Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend is one of the more interesting of the recent additions to the range. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2015.
