“The 2019 Vitiano Rosso Falesco (made with equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese) shows shapely and opulent fruit with blackberry, spice and tobacco. The wine is partially aged in oak, but it’s enough to add plenty of structure and concentration. This is an ample production of 500,000 bottles." - Monica Larner

The Vitiano Rosso of the Falesco estate is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Sangiovese grapes in equal parts, which grow in Montecchio and Orvieto. We are in Umbria at about 300 meters above sea level, where the soil is generally clayey and calcareous.-Winemaker Notes

The Merlot is harvested in the first weeks of September, while Cabernet and Sangiovese are harvested in the third decade of September. The winemaking occurs at different times between the three varieties and involves an extended maceration with numerous pumping over and punching down. The wine is then assembled and left to age in oak barrels for at least three months. After bottling, there is still a short rest period in the cellar before being placed on the market.

Intense ruby red. The aroma is elegant, with pleasant fruity notes of cherry and red fruits that alternate with hints of aromatic herbs to close with mineral puffs. Soft and fresh on the palate; The tannin is present but well integrated. Good correspondence between aromas and flavour~Winery Notes
