Very well received by everyone who tasted it. Smells like frosted cherry pie, but there's a lot of fresh acidity giving it a tart finish. Read more

Rather assertive on the nose with dark cherry fruit topped with fine floral and herbal top notes. This smells decidedly ripe. Youthful and maybe a bit closed on the palate with a slightly dense feel, though this remains lively and elegant. There’s a really fine blend of fruit and flowers here with a long, complex layered finish. This is quite the complete wine, rich yet lithe; and it’s youthful, so expect this to really shine with a few hours of air or two to three years in the bottle. 91pts

A summer red. It should be served a little chilled and goes well with appetizers, cheeses, cured meats and pates and won’t overpower the occasional fish dish. A bright red color with hints of rose petals and strawberries. This wine is light and wildly aromatic.

Served chilled (it was a little too cold, but warmed up at the table). The nose was muted due to the temperature, but there was a cherry pie flavor, complete with vanilla pie crust. Light, and with no tannins.

A dry red made from Frappato, a very Sicilian grape variety. Pretty from the start, this scrumptious wine is ruby red in color, with firm raspberry fruit and lively acidity. It is the perfect easy-drinking wine to enjoy every day with Italian red sauce dishes.
