Monte Del Frá Bardolino 2011
This is always such a fresh, light, juicy and almost joyous red with fragrant, floral wild rose, berry/plum fruit and some fresh dug earthy character. It's quite delicate, fruity and fresh on the palate, with excellent length. So juicy. Not a traditional 90 point red structurally, but there is no denying its vivacious charm. Score: 90 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)

This isn't a showstopper, but there's true beauty in the freshness of this wine. Incredibly aromatic with intense cherry and raspberry notes along with a bit of earthiness to add some complexity. Light-bodied, it's very juicy with refreshing acidity and a long finish. Figured this would be something nice and simple to pair with pizza, but this is the best damn pizza wine I've had in a long time!! Seriously enjoyable and an amazing value. Definitely buying more!

David is right on. The main taste for me is cherries, and it is quite smooth with a decent finish. It starts well and grows with each glass. I can't quite give it a 90, but it is very good especially for the price. I will buy more of this one.
