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

Impossible to score properly at this stage. Didn't love this the first evening. Aeration didn't help much. A little less harsh on day two. Day three the drink was much smoother, but less fruit on the nose. I finished the bottle on day four, but it had turned the corner. Each day bottle was "Vacu-Vin" closed and refridgerated, then allowed to come to room temp in the glass before drinking. For now will give an 87 because I feel there is potential -- but it isn't living up to the promise yet. [87]

Wonderful aromas of blackberries, licorice and berries. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. A bit austere now but should turn around. Cabernet and Cabernet Franc. The sister of Montiano. Best after 2006.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Umbria in Italy. 2004 Falesco Marciliano 750ml

A Bordeaux blend in the heart of Italy andmdash; 70% Cabernet Sauvigon and 30% Cabernet Franc, from vineyards throughout Umbria, this wine ranks up there with some of the better Bordeaux chateaux. Huge dark fruit on the nose with pepper and herbs on the palate. Layers of complexity and fruit coat your mouth and the finish continues on well after you swallow. The tannins are sweet and soft, allowing you to open this wine now and save a few bottles for the cellar. This andldquo;Tre Bicchieriandrdquo; winner screams for a steak or venison.

This rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with some Cabernet Franc shows an earthy complexity. A recent recipient of Italyandrsquo;s coveted andldquo;Tre Bicchieriandrdquo; award, previous vintages of this wine have scored 94 and 95 points. Enjoy now or buy some to cellar.

The 2004 Marciliano (70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc) is made in a similarly powerful, structured style as the Montiano. Unfortunately it doesnandrsquo;t have that wineandrsquo;s core of fruit and I donandrsquo;t see it ever becoming an especially generous wine. The Cabernet Franc character is also surprisingly absent in this wine. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2016.
