A lovely chilled out evening in our rented flat in Copenhagen, after a long day out swimming. Roasted some vegetables to go with pasta and red pesto, and opened this 2017 Frappato (brought from home):
Compared to other Frappato we like, this was a tad unusual - very perfumed, like a hit of violets, or pot-pourri, as well as black cherries, plums, clove and liquorice. On the palate it had pleasant bakewell tart, baking spices and damson notes. Lively acidity and smooth tannins, but an aftertaste which was a bit hard to pin down. Not unpleasant, but had nicer Frappato. Worked well with the food, mind you, so can’t complain!
Happy weekend, all!
