quote:Parker gave this red called Falesco a 90 or 91 and Vanderchuk said it was mediocre wine with a "sad" finish. Made me laugh, that comment, and boosted his cred in my book
I saw that. I'll trust Gary on that one as you can see his face tasting it plus Wine Library probably bought 200 cases of that stuff, so that was a good honest drubbing. Cheapie italians like that are bought by the car load like Yellow Tail. Still, most of the people who drink it don't know who the hell Robert Parker or Gary Vaynerchuck are anyway, so it doesn't matter.
I've had Falesco Sangiovese before. It is a table wine in a pizza restaurant - like on every table 90 points seemed pushing it. I'll probably have it poured for me again sometime.
