The 2013 Vitiano Rosso shows a rich and darkly saturated appearance. The blend is Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon - all the grapes that have brought the Cotarella family and this beautiful corner of Umbria to the world stage. The winemaking has been tweaked here and there and the results are absolutely phenomenal, especially if you are looking for excellent value. The bouquet is packed tight with dark fruit and spice. There is a hint of ripe blackberry and cherry liqueur on the close.
