Falesco Supertuscan Blend Umbria IGT Vitiano 2000

Member Review by RobertoPatriarca:

RP 91 - From the family estate of renowned oenologist, Riccardo Cotarella, this may be the most unbelievable value in the marketplace. A blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sangiovese, aged four months in new French oak, and bottled with neither fining nor filtration, this spectacular effort offers up a sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, liquorice, and subtle toast scents. Amazingly concentrated, full-bodied, seamless, and beautifully pure, this spectacular wine will drink well for 3-4 years. Mouth filling and harmonious, it is a fabulous achievement that must be tasted to be believed. Frutas vermelhas, especilamente Cherry. Longo final.

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
