Vinicola Falesco Montefiascone

Falesco, Vitiano Umbria 2003 ($11) -- Italy. Imported by Winebow, Inc. A very pleasant red table wine that opens up over time. Would be great with a week day dinner. Not complex, but tastey. Here are the winemaking notes:

"VITIANO I.G.T. A blend of 33% Merlot, 33% Cabernet and 34% 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."
