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. Anticipated Maturity: 2012-2019.

Wine maker notes
The picturesque Umbrian hillside vineyards provide ideal ripening conditions with their wonderful exposure and perfectly-draining volcanic soil. The Falesco Assisi Rosso is crafted from 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The resulting wine is matured for 4 months in French oak barriques to allow for full flavor development.

Food pairing
Pair this wine with spicy chorizo, tomato sauces, roasted venison, and beef carpaccio.
