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.

This is a great medium-bodied wine with silky tannins and good oak. Aroma has touches of berry and spices. For the price this is delicious!

A blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, this is a blockbuster young red wine with explosive, luscious aromas. Vitiano Rosso is deep ruby red in color, and offers a wide range of fruit and spice aromas, including black cherry jam, licorice and tobacco leaf. This versatile wine pairs well with a wide array of food, including meat, pasta and pizza.

A young red wine with explosive, luscious aromatic fragrance. This wine has a wonderful, deep, intense ruby red colour with important, solid, and wide organoleptic qualities, but above all it exalts the food it is combined with. It is very rich in polyphenols which harmonize with its fresh, tasty acidity.

Black currant and floral aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with juicy, crushed black fruit and light spicy flavors that linger. Nicely done. Needs a little time to come together. Delicious, Best after 2009.

The 2008 Vitiano Rosso (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese) is a racy, sleek wine that impresses with its layers of perfumed red cherries and sweet toasted oak. The wine offers terrific clarity and precision in a slightly taut, focused style for this offering. A few months of bottle age seems prudent. According to proprietor Riccardo Cotarella, the bottle variation that occasionally shows up in Vitiano is most likely attributable to the different amounts of time the various lots spend in bottle prior to arriving on the market. Clearly lots that have more time in bottle have the potential to show greater harmony than lots that have less time in bottle. That said, slight bottle variation issues here are a minor quibble for a wine that delivers so much value. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012. Riccardo Cotarellarsquo;s wines at Falesco continue to deliver incredible value.

Beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very well-integrated tannins and a clean aftertaste of vanilla and berry. Amazing quality for the money. Best after 2008.

A truly interesting wine with rich and spicy components coming through on the nose. Noble in character with a complex and harmonious structure and a lingering finish. Ideal for roasted dishes but especially recommended with game.
