Somewhat effervescent. Kind of old barn smell with some awkward fruit. No finish. Pass this one by.

Enjoying less and less each vintage. Probably me.

Always a pleaser. Not a big wine, but still a really fine one. Balanced and truly well crafted in every way. And yes, we both have a crush on Arianna, but dont tell anyone.

I love this wine. It never gets old and works wonders at the table. Food friendly, easy to drink, balanced, everyone can drink it. Just needs some air to open.

A bit spritzy from the Brett but still enjoyable enough with sufficient grip and intensity to not be overpowered by barn animals. Still, I long for the unadulterated purity and splashy freshness of her frappato here.

This wine kicks ass and then some. I bought a case. You should too. Unless you have poor tastes... Drink it now. It's all about super fresh bramble fruits, flowers, and that Italian "Je ne sais quoi." It's imminently drinkable. Soft tannins, mineral, good acid, and freshness with a little spritz. Pour it btg, have fun with it.

Smooth dark fruit. Easy drinking. Will be great with Italian fare.

On a big #Sicily kick of late, this is a step or two up from yesterday in complexity and class. Another steal at $22-25 this is also a blend of Nero di Avola and Frappato. The nose started out reduced, but the palate was clean. The nose grew leaps and bounds after an hour to a fresh mix of red fruit perfume ala Burgundy, fresh cut flowers, and a little wet stone funk. The palate is light as a feather, fresh and consistent with bursts of blood orange, cherry, subtle spice. The finish streams on with excellent acidity and fine, though quite firm, youthful tannin. #occhipinti #sicily #frappato #NeroDiAvola
