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.
Tremendous value, delicious wine.
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.
The best italian red wine I have ever tasted!
Three and a half glasses
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!

This versatile wine pairs well with a wide array of food, including meat, pasta and pizza.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
