Falesco, Umbria IGT, Vitiano 2005 This wine is showing nicely at a point in its evolution over 6 years since the grapes were harvested. It is light-bodied as expected, as it was in bottles tasted early on. Yet what we have now is complexity beyond the primary fruit aromas that we experienced in the early days.
It is always a pleasure when an economical wine gains in its ability to give pleasure with longer innings in the game; maybe more so because we often don’t expect so much from the wines that are offered at value prices. Bottled in Montecchio 13% purchased for $7.99 at Bottle Barn some years ago.
