This tastes like a volcano. Minerals galore. Red berries. Acidic. But in a good way.

Fresh to death.

Lightness, not to be confused with either elegance or vapidity, but rather a state of mind. With Sicilian cuisine, one prefers to have the food lead and the wine follow (albeit closely).
Brilliant crunchy red fruit, mineral-palooza, spice, and some pencil lead gripping the tongue but not too sharply. Pass the Arancini per favore!

Juicy with red berry, kinda light and easy drinking. Great roast chicken wine. Beautiful, round flavors. Good value, I’d say.

Black cherry, cough syrup, brash acidity and tannins.. seems to all stich together with seared tuna.

Elegant and light, dry mineral, easy to sip on its own and works well with lighter meat and even fish. Very nice alternative to a light pinot noir.

チェリーやラズベリーのようなチャーミングさ。溶け込んだタンニン。果実味や酸、タンニンいずれもがとけどけしくなくて、柔らかエレガント。
塩味があるからか、パルミジャーノとオリーブオイルを使ったシンプルな料理や、柴漬けのタルタルに合わせたカツレツも最高のペアリング。
