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.

A little light for my tastes but it was refreshing, herbal and tart and would try it again with food.
