"The 2006 Montiano (Merlot) offers up a bouquet of sweet toasted oak, black cherries, plums, new leather and licorice. Soft and harmonious on the palate, the wine reveals excellent depth and silky tannins in an engaging, supple style. This is a very pretty effort from Falesco," April 2009. 92 Points, Robert Parker.
