    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby-red in color, this Umbrian palate-pleaser is brimming with youthful notes of ripe berry, plum and cherry. On the palate, it is crisp and light with refreshing acidity and mild tannins. This wine makes an ideal match with spicy chorizo, tomato-sauced dishes, as well as game and steak tartare.

    Falesco Assisi Rosso is crafted from 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The picturesque setting and exposure of the hillside Umbrian vineyards, with perfectly draining volcanic soil, provide ideal ripening conditions. This rich blend produces a wine that is at once full of structure yet completely accessible.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Assisi Rosso is a new wine from Falesco. The blend is 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Interestingly, the Assisi Rosso shows more Sangiovese character than the estate's pure Sangiovese. Sweet tobacco, underbrush, licorice and cherries flow from this beautifully delineated, layered wine. This is another strong effort from Falesco, not to mention a terrific value.

    Dry and smooth. Not bitter or vinegary. But I'd like more flavor. My husband is easy to please (that works in my favor), but he said this tastes like church wine. That's not a compliment.

    I found this particular wine a bit to robust for me. I thought it would be sweeter however, my guest at dinner seemed to enjoy it.
