The Rest Of The Story: You haven't had Falseco's Vitiano yet? Really? Ever?
Given how prolific Falesco is with this wine (150k+ cases a year), it would come as a surprise if that were the case. Not only that, but it's a great little wine.
It might seem like a cliché, but this wine is so consistently likeable, you can’t help but turn to it for pizza and pasta night. And for a sawbuck you get a very enjoyable red with real body, good fruit, and undeniable Italian character. The blend of almost equal parts Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Merlot is done in a slightly international style.
No, it's not a mind-bending wine of irresistible soul (the some of Falesco's other bottling definitely are), but hell, it's yours for a ten-spot and available pretty much any place that sells Italian wine.
