Falesco Tellus Merlot 2013


SKU 30824


Tellus Merlot, which is aged for six months in small French oak barrels, has a very deep colour. The scents are wide, rich, soft and spicy and the aromas are noble, well balanced and harmonious with an extremely long lingering finish. It is a perfect accompaniment to red meat, meat balls with tomato sauce, minced kidney or salted codfish with tomato sauce.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Merlot Tellus was initially closed during my tasting and opened slowly to reveal red fruit, spice and grilled herb. Fruit is sourced from different soil types and at different harvest times to allow for more variability in winemaking. This is a new product in the Falesco line. The Merlot is smooth and silky on the finish.

Wine SpectatorGrippy tannins are layered with flavors of grilled herb, spice box, mineral and dried currant and strawberry fruit in this medium-bodied red. The tannins hold sway on the finish. Best after 2017. 6,667 cases made.
