1998 Falesco Merlot
Umbria, Italy
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 12.5%
Price at time of purchase: $12.50 (Premier Cru (Emeryville))
Type: Merlot
Principal varietal(s): Merlot

A terrific buy, less than half the price of most Merlots approaching this quality. Deep, brilliant ruby color. Excellent nose of chocolate, vanilla, spicy dark cherry, and cedar follows through in the flavors. Medium bodied and harmonious, with a distinctly elegant and refined French feel to it. Excellent, long finish. Should be tasty for another 10 years. - HK 2002-09-30
