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.

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.
