    August 8, 2020 - A very joy-inducing wine: fresh, juicy with lovely fruit and lively acidity. Not one to age long (the tannins are very smooth) but one to enjoy with food now and for the next few years.

    July 11, 2020 - Medium-light ruby color. Aromas of cherry, potting soil, hay and nutmeg. Medium-light body, juicy cherry flavor, fine-grained tannins. Improved in glass, losing stalkiness in the finish, so give it enough air prior to drinking.

    April 17, 2020 - Wonderful interesting nose that's had a bit of funk to make it interesting followed by a well balanced palate that's not overly fruity. A very easy drinking wine. Paired beautifully with an arugula salad with parmigiano reggiano, olive oil, and aged balsamic vinegar. At this price, I need to get more!

    April 8, 2020 - This is an easy drinking wine from Sicily with sour cherry fruit, bing cherries, good minerality and a medium finish. It seems to be very primary with its fruitiness and acidity, but i am assuming that this is not a wine for aging.

    March 27, 2020 - PnP mens pizzastålet varmer seg. Artig litt rå lukt med modningsaroma. Stikkende fersk sødmefylt frukt på smak. Relativt elegant midtparti. Frisk lang og fast ettersmak med mandel og plommestein . Veldig gøy vin som danser i glasset.
