This seemed to have more heft than other COS bottling ive tried and lacked a bit of the producers usual elegance for me. But this was still really good and a slice of Lou Malnati’s to accompany is a wonderful thing

Beautifully perfumed and elegant cherry with a damp soil earthiness. Excellently & transparently crafted.

Excellent. Earthy. One of our dinner guests felt this was one of the best wines she has ever had.

Puckeringly dry and somewhat tannic. Bit of alcohol on the nose. Fruit on the palate is difficult to discern. But more dark cherry than anything else. One note and that’s it. Others commented that it is good with pizza. But so is root beer.

The Nero adds some weight to the Frappato. Black cherry, underripe strawberry with tannins and acid. Great with pizza. One of my favorite Sicilian producers.

Substantial. The Nero adds some darker fruit, some tannins and more body. So good with pizza.

A bit bland for this price point. Cherries, a bit of barnyard. Not bad, but not making a real impression.

Exceptional wine. Bold but still on the light side. Fruit forward with great earthy taste

2016: Disappointing after the excellent 2015. Rather thin and light plum fruit, without the body or nice food acids of the 2015. $25 at Vine Republic.
