All I want for Christmas…

Do not open til... nevermind. Open it now.

2008 Valle Dell’Acate “Il Frappato”

You don’t need to be fluent in Italian to know that this is truly THE Frappato.  (Dad, you can resume ordering your basket of peaches:).  This is a dry red wine with a fruity bouquet and a long finish.  A glass of this frappato is well-balanced with justenough tannins to stand up to a meaty red sauce or stand up on its own.

$17 at the Wine Merchant in Raleigh
