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

A top choice for a daily drinker. Vitiano Falesco offers great value at $7.99 a bottle, delivering a solid performance and outperforming wines that are double its price point. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese, this wine delivers on the palate, with lots of fruit flavors including berries, cassis, cherries, oak and hints of chocolate. The finish is a bit lacking, but for the price it cannot be beat.

A great wine, especially at the price. Even though this wine is from Umbria, it is a super-tuscan blend type, and a really good one. Vintage after vintage, scores 89-90 points. I can't wait to taste the 2007 vintage, as it is reportedly improved enough to score 91 points.
