Sicilian terroir. Zippy, earthy, strawberry, musk, savory. Lip smacking!

Such a fun wine to drink. Perhaps not as much depth of flavor as the '13 or needs a bit more time. Generally light bodied, with good acidity a bit of funk on the nose and dark fruit and savory flavors and some tannic pull on the finish.

This really needed a fair amount of air to show its best. At first, it wasn’t showing much but structure; later, it’s complexity and freshness came through.

Ok. I give in. Her Frappato is pretty stimulating - the old vines and extended maceration for a light bodied grape does wonders. Even with that long maceration, confused by all the claims of "gripping tannins". Lots of spicy rose petals and dark cherry with a touch of soil. Absolutely needs a chill. The wine hipsters wine again.

Medium body, fruit notes. Not too acidic or tanic. Great wine.
