Wine Tasting 101 - Falesco Vitiano
Where I live, we're still waiting for the 2000 to arrive; but as the month ends, here's my report on the 1999, a fruity if rather earthy wine that goes well with food. We'll be announcing the featured wine for September in Monday's 30 Second Wine Advisor. I hope many of you will participate in this free online wine-tasting community. Click the WT101 link above for more details.
Falesco 1999 "Vitiano" Umbria ($9.99)
FOOD MATCH: Fine with thin-sliced rare beef and onions on a summer-squash risotto.
