Falesco Merlot Umbria IGT 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: The Montiano '97 is not a wine that is easily forgotten. It manages to provide sensations that, on the palate, become almost overwhelmingly exciting. It is as warm and silky as only a great wine can be, and shows enormous body and complexity, with its spicy, herbaceous and balsamic notes: Three Glasses for the fourth time in a row. (2000)

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

...Montiano vino da tavola...is fabulous. It displays multiple layers that build in the mouth, exploding at the back of the palate. From its opaque purple color, the huge sweet notes of chocolate, smoke, black fruits, and toast satiate the olfactory ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
