Bracingly high acidity and grip compared to the 2017. Better after a couple of days. This one needs time. The Frappato is much more approachable.

A perennial favorite, lighthearted and fresh, juicy fruits with a grounding weightiness. Cherries and dark plums.

An initial light roughness gives way to more structure before an ending roughness. An interesting wine.
