Winemaker's Notes:

Typical bright rosè colour with purple glints. It is a sprightly wine growing in fineness which distinguishes itself for elegant, scented smells of fresh fruit. Full-bodied with lingering aromas, it is soft, balanced with sapid finish.

Blend: Merlot 30%, Cabernet 30%, Sangiovese 30%, Aleatico 10%

About Falesco:

In 2006, our customers purchased more bottles of wine from Falesco than from any other winery in the world! And it's no wonder, as this winery makes some of the top value wines in Italy, if not the world. Falesco's most popular wine is Vitiano, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese grown in Umbria. This is a perennial must-buy: It's lush and fruity, and always seems to garnish outstanding scores from the wine critics.

Falesco was founded in 1979 by Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, brothers that also happen to be two of Italy's most acclaimed winemakers. Their philosophy is to strike a balance between the uniqueness of native Italian varieties and the versatility of more "international" grapes. As evidenced by the enormous popularity of their wine and the countless worldwide accolades they have received, they have clearly succeeded in achieving their goal. Salute!
