Friuli DOC, Italy; 12% ABV
$6 at the Richmond, CA, store on 24 May
After we all liked the Giormani 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso, I jumped on this bottle with its nice pale green color. However, I didn’t like this one so much.
It has nice enough flavors of lime / green apple, melon, and pear, but the flavors are rather light, and the acid is rather strong and not all that tasty. I guess it’s okay if you like this style, but for me it was on the lower end of Drinkable, especially for $6.
The next day the fruit was slightly more forward, but still hardly exciting.
