From the bottle:
"In creating Vitiano Rosso, I combined the quality, terroir and historic tradition of Umbria with modern winemaking practices to craft a wine of contemporary style and character. A blend of Merlot (34%), Cabernet Sauvignon (33%) and Sangiovese (33%), Vitiano Rosso is rich with dark red fruit aromas and flavors. Merlot adds roundness and sweetness to the palate, Cabernet Sauvignon brings body and complexity, and the acidity of Sangiovese provides balance to the mix. Notes of black cherries, plum and spice make this wine an ideal match for red meat and tomato sauced dishes.

The 2010 Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria begins with strong, enticing aromas of dark ripe fruit, spice and smoke. Tasting the wine reveals flavors similar to those found in the wonderful bouquet with a bit of a rustic tinge to it. This is a savory wine that has some personality, which is not always something you find in the under $10 price range. It ends dry with more rustic fruit, followed by oaky spice and finally a bit of coffee at the very end. Excellent! It reminds me a bit of one of the cheap and delicious Italian wines that influenced me to start this site, the 2008 Trentatre Rosso.
