Falesco Pesano Merlot

Falesco Pesano Merlot
Italy, $19 +494351
This Umbrian Merlot can stand up to any kind of red pasta sauce and then some. It’s a deep purple in the glass and, compared to the occasionally insipid Merlots from California, has a Southern Italian wallop of coffee beans and spice on the palate to let you know what’s up. It’s also a deal at under $20 so do yourself a favour and pick up more than one bottle.
