Pithos Rosso Vittoria Nero d'Avola Frappato 2016

Awesome wine. Drank over three days. First two, an elegant well balanced wine that tastes like a Nebbiolo but without heavy tannins. Has more body than a 12% al wine would suggest. Various berries esp strawberries. But in an elegant style. Really like this. I think this is a clay-stored wine? Forgot the term. Btw, not so great day three. — a month ago

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Sangiovese 2012

A little chill on this bottle brings to life the fresh character of this style. I imagine it goes well with pasta and pizza dishes like nobody's business. This six year old is still fresh and bright. It's dry with clean aromas of sweet licorice leaves red and black cherry with more wet stone minerality and soft textured tannins on the finish. I'd drink this every day if allowed. Great value at $25 CDN. — a month ago

Passorosso. 13.5% abv. A good 1-1.5% abv less than the 2012 and 2014. More delicate as a result. Resiny red fruits. Minerally. Good! — 3 days ago

Cantina Colomba Bianca

Vitese Merlot

Color of ruby, a bit cloudy. Nose of cranberry, red cherry, spice, a bit flowering note, tobacco leaves, and a bit medicinal note. Taste of cherry, good acidity, some flowering note, some juicy sweetness, mellow tannins, and indeed more sweet fresh berry note. Aftertaste is a bit short with some spice and more juicy grapes. Above average. — 9 days ago
