Winemaker's Notes

Number 11 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

A blend of equal parts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes grown in the region of Umbria. Vitiano is vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged in Nevers barrels for 3 months before being bottled. This is a young red wine with explosive, luscious aromas. The wine has a wonderful deep, ruby red color with a wide range of organoleptic qualities. It is rich in polyphenols and balanced acidity. This versatile red is at it's best in its youth when the fresh fruit character is most evident. Vitiano is a perennial value.
 
"A wine with lovely balance and clean plum, berry and chocolate character, medium body and polished tannins. The perfect house wine--a great value. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2010." Wine Spectator  May 15, 2006

"...This serious effort possesses a deep ruby/purple-tinged color as well as lovely aromas of black currants, licorice, dried herbs, and earth. An amazing value..."

This had all the makings of a okay bottle of wine, but it turned out so much better. The roundness of the oak, and the clean finish were great. The slight bite and then the burst of flavor, great wine, and I'm cheap so the price is right too.
