Frappato on Snooth

  • Frappato is another low-tannin wine grape.  Occhipinti makes one that is reasonably well-distributed. Barbera is also pretty low in tannins, although lots of winemakers have dolled it up with oak, which adds tannin to it.  Read More

  • Greg, if you do the Furmint v. Chenin test, I want to be there.  I like my ... slightly generic light reds--Frappato is in the same ballpark, but has more potential for interest.  Still, with some things, a light red can be good--like when you want St. Joseph instead of Cote Rotie.  Say, fish with olives and tomato water.&nbs Read More

    Fairly nice Sicilian red from the frappato grape. Light red in color with fresh raspberry and red cherry on the nose. A somewhat light body is supported with nice acidity and smooth tannins.

  • Had some neighbors over Friday for an Italian themed potluck. Good thing I have neighbors who can cook and who appreciate my wine...makes for a nice group effort.Not much time to go over everything in detail, but I continue to enjoy 2011 Barbera d'Alba, and also the 2011 Tommasi Soave that I picked up last minute was a real surprise. I'll be buy... Read More
