89 because Falesco's Tellus Merlot 2013 is a great value, velvety and sumptuous, it retails for less than $15 in the US. From vineyards in Montecchio, in the heart of Umbria, the Merlot sourced for Tellus is grown in clay and calcareous soils. It's an open-hearted wine, and softly focused with lush layers of black cherries and plums, leather, and earth. On the finish, dried sage emerges, it achieves nice complexity, given its price. 13.0% ABV | Sample

Definitely An Italian nose. Medium body. Tangy acidity on the sides of the tongue
