"Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese are the varieties that give rise to this wine. A young red wine with an ample, rich aromatic fragrance. The wine is a lovely, deep and intense ruby red colour with an important, solid and substantial character but, above all, it brings out all the flavours of the food with which it is matched. It is very rich in polyphenols, which harmonize with its fresh and tonic acidity." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
First released in 1995, Vitiano's blend – Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon – suggests a tasting experience in the manner of a Chianti, but in reality its Umbria character is what shines through most vividly. With roughly equal portions of each of the three grape varieties in the blend, there is a great balance between the three varieties' individual personalities. The 2013 Vitiano features a super-concentrated blast of fruit with a spicy, peppery edge to temper the sweetness, filling out on the palate with notes of grilled herbs and soft black fruit in a plump, fresh style.
"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." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
