The new vintage is even more beautiful than the last. It’s delicate and light bodied, with just a slight sting of acid on the finish… Clean and pure strawberry and rhubarb flavors with a nice sense of mineral and salinity. The wine is fine on it’s own but it really shined when paired with light fluffy fish in a brown butter sauce. 


I recommend this to anyone who loves food, italy, pinot noir-ish wines, and natural wine.

Light, fresh and fun. My bottle was slightly effervescent. The more I drink Frappato the more I like it.

Fresh strawberries and light, fresh herbs. A light chill would make this the perfect red porch pounder, even for the aficionado.

Red fruit with subtle herbs and spice. A serious value.

From what I understand is a relatively small producer, this is a nice alternative to gamay or light Pinot noir. Light in color and body, 12%, nose with rustic earthiness, juicy and begging for another sip. Another summer wine. Would be good with light meat dishes and pizza.

Trying to delve into the Italian reds. Super light body - rhubarb hints. Tannins are almost non-existent compared to my usuals. Light, easy drinker. Mix of dark and light fruits. Light bouquet, almost mineral smelling. Cannot pin it.
