Cos Frappato 2014

A sicilian company, whose wines I drink regularly, from a lot of time and whose quality is constant and positively awesome, along the entire product range.

Very fruity nose about orange and pink grapefruit, cherry and pomegranate, supported by a sharp and pleasantly spicy profile, completed by petal shades of rose and a strong imprint of marine minerality.

The olfactory cutting, is widely seconded to the palate, whose acidity, releases a deadly drink, spurred by agile 12.5° alcohol. Always red fruit in the foreground, enriched by vibrant strawberry and raspberry inserts, while a stimulating brackish vein growing in intensity, which reverberates mint, rhubarb and mace.

The Sicily in the bottle, with all its flavors.

Azienda Agricola La Felce In Origine 400 2014

The entry-level product of this Italian organic wine company, conducted by Andrea Marcesini, Hills of Luni, Liguria, in the North West.

It is a blend of 60% Vermentino, 30% Trebbiano Toscano, completed by a non-aromatic grape Malvasia of Candia; average age of the vineyard 60 years, six months aging on the lees, only steel.

So ruled the nose and, harmoniously, confirmed the palate: fine wine, tasty freshness, oozing water, resin and pine nuts, mediterranean herbs, fern and white flowers, with a strong citrusy footprint.
Fairly persistent closure, with sharp balsamic projections and almond touches.
True and genuine.

Clos Des 3 Sources Rosé 2015

One of many, honest, and more than good rosé wine, on sale at the supermarket chains, across the Alps. We are not far from Aix-en-Provence, where this domaine, one of the three Château Gassier properties, cultivates in organic regime since 1994, a clos of 19 hectares.

Cinsault and Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, the grapes determinatig, in not declared percentages, this soft pink, very bright, with great freshness and delicate scents.

A beautiful flower side - rose and violet - is accompanied by precise wild berries aromas - strawberries and raspberries - a citrus touch and a hint of spice.

Fresh and energetic mouth, substantially consistent with the olfactory track. Dry and well balanced, easy to drink, albeit short persistence, with velvety fruity references and a mineral hint.

Far beyond its cost.
