Falesco Vitiano Rosso 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Vitiano Rosso shows excellent balance with less of the overripe character that has been a signature of past vintages. Dark red fruit, roasted coffee beans, spices and mocha are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this fleshy, generous Vitiano Rosso. The fruit is beautifully layered all the way through to the finish.- Wine Advocate

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

Delicious! The Sangiovese seems to dominate this blend. It has well balanced acidity, with cherry and blackberry that start at the nose and are still graciously present at the finish. Near perfect oak and spice characteristics compliment the fruit and add to this wines complexity. The quality to price ratio can't be beat! 34% Sangiovese 33% Merlot 33% Cabernet Sauvignon

Produced by Falesco in Umbria, about which the Wine Advocate says “Riccardo Cotarella’s wines at Falesco continue to deliver incredible value.” This is a great Super Tuscan style wine for everyday. Their vineyards are on hillsides 1,000 feet above sea level, so the grapes get good sun exposure and tempering effects of the altitude. This brings good development of flavors as the grapes ripen slowly. A blend of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 34% Sangiovese, after fermentation they let the wine age for just three months in French Never oak barrels for a hint of oak character and a touch of added complexity. The Wine Advocate said "The 2010 Vitiano Rosso shows excellent balance with less of the overripe character that has been a signature of past vintages. Dark red fruit, roasted coffee beans, spices and mocha are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from this fleshy, generous Vitiano Rosso. The fruit is beautifully layered all the way through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016."
