A review of Alloy Wine Works, 207 Antipasto Sangiovese for Weekend Wine Reviews!
Alloy Wine Works – Kitty Cat Approved
Luxie and I are back today to bring you a review of Ally Wine Works – 2017 Antipasto Sangiovese. Yes, it’s wine in a can. Yes, we like wine in a can. We are not purists. We drink wine from cans and wines with screwcaps. We don’t care what vessel the wine comes in as long as it tastes good. So far, we have been very pleased with Alloy Wine Works. Luxie agrees.
Alloy Wine Works 2017 Antipasto Sangiovese
Alloy Wine Works, 2017 Antipasto Sangiovese. Paso Robles, California. They say: On the nose – jammy red fruit like cherry and plum with notes of red Jell-O and Twizzlers. On the palate – bright and fruity with a medium body, it’s like grape juice you could drink all day long. It is rich with fresh red fruit, but just enough acidity keeps it balanced and easy drinking. Very fruit forward and medium bodied.
Luxie kitty is very impressed with the fact that this wine is made using Carbonic Maceration! Most wines use a tradition fermentation process of pressing grapes to release juice that is then fermented into alcohol. This wine is made using carbonic maceration which involves leaving the grapes whole and putting them in tanks to ferment from inside the skins!
It produces ready to drink wine quickly and also results in fruit forwards wines with low tannins.
That’s your wine lesson for the day!
