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
