    March 9, 2020 - Medium body, volcanic minerals on the nose. Bright red fruit with long crisp (slightly acidic unless allowed to breath for 90 minutes). Best with food - pairs well with pasta. A weekday wine...

    September 18, 2018 - Chalking this one up as flawed. Astringent acidity and not much else going on here.

    August 26, 2018 - Interesting rather than nice. Slight petillance, which didn't help. Frappato is a mid-weight, mid-coloured red from Sicily and this is a good example. Pronounced strawberry flavour, high acidity, medium body and alcohol. Tannins low to medium.

    March 13, 2018 - Superlative QPR. This is ridiculously easy to like. Consumed over two nights, it was just as good on night #2.
