Falesco Vitiano Rosso 2011
The 2011 Vitiano Rosso is surprisingly medium-bodied in this vintage, which causes the French oak to be a bit more noticeable than is typically the case. This tasty Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend is a solid choice for drinking over the next year or two. Riccardo Cotarella's Falesco wines are all about value, and there is plenty of that here.- Wine Advocate
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Falesco Vitiano Rosso
Though merlot accounts for a third of this wine, along with sangiovese and cabernet, it dominates the blend with bright, heady richness. With tarry tannin and burnt orange zest volatility, this is ready for a meaty ragù.
