I was expecting better. It turned towards stewed fruit after an hour. I didn't get much of that bright Frappato character.

Okay. If you can find it, this bottle is bad ass AND affordable. Nero d'avola and Frappato. "Refreshing" red wine? Awesome.
Cherry fruit bomb.

Capa media y densidad baja, en nariz fruta poco madura, notas de bosque, cereal y fondo meloso. En boca entrada amarga, paso muy seco y final agradable.

Slightly volatile, mid-weight, fruit-forward, very refreshing. Not her best wine (that I've tasted). A fine companion for swordfish belly, baccala, and pork belly w/lentils.

Quite wonderful. Slightly funky nose when first opened, Mostly blows off to replaced with black cherry and earthy notes. Black fruit, mineral and lingering acidity, quite yummy
