Tart strawberry with cherry liqueur, some white pepper and rose petals. There’s plenty of acid, balanced with a sappy sweetness that make this wine approachable, Reminds me of another northern Italian varietal in the lovely Vajra Rosso: Freisa
SommSelect. Thanks for this one, Mike!

Lifted aromas of rose water, juicy red cherries, raspberry, and hints of peppery spices. Elevated acidity, diminished tannins, and 13% abv.

Fresh, floral red and blue berry fruits, with subtle earth and baking spice, pale ruby in color but surprising structure, enjoyed with grilled blowfish tails and fettuccine with lamb sausage

I think I’ve found my favorite pizza wine! Light-colored, with a lively nose of peppercorns, violets, spice and quinine. Zingy and crunchy in the mouth, with a contradictory sense that it’s both full-bodied yet light and zingy. Really unique!

Little cranberries and a resounding tartness. More tannin than you would expect but a nice pepperiness mixed with rose petals. Almost like a lighter bourgeil. Cherry pie.
