Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2012 Merlot is another knockout value wine. Riccardo Cotarella dedicated much of the first part of his winemaking career to Merlot. You can feel his familiarity with the grape here, even on a basic wine like this. Softly rendered oak tones wrap gently around a core of dark berry fruit. The results are delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016. (Aug 2013)

Wine maker notes
For this 100% Merlot, Falesco hand-harvests grapes from the Orvieto estate’s best hillside vineyards, where the exposure, setting, and soil are perfect for grape ripening. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel, aged in French oak barriques for six months, and bottled without filtration in order to preserve the wine’s rich organoleptic character.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with choucroute, harissa-based sauces, lamb tagines, or massaman curry.

Producer
Two of Italy”s most acclaimed winemakers, brothers Riccardo and Renzo Cotarella, founded Falesco in 1979. Their philosophy is focused on balancing the uniqueness and tradition of native varietals with the versatility of international grapes. The result is a complete portfolio of wines that consumers and critics alike have recognized as exhibiting extreme value and Best of Class offerings.
