(2014) No oak for this bottling of Merlot, and a really sweet, jammy nose showing just a touch of tomato leaf, but it remains creamy and up-front. On the palate there is a slightly dry quality to the fruit and tannins. It finishes with a slightly disjointed character, but is pleasantly savoury.
(2010) There aren't nearly so many red wines around at low alcohol levels. This 9.5% partner to the white above has pleasant, light, slightly floral aromas with a touch of cherry and red plum. On the palate a light-bodied, but smooth textured wine. Quite a bit of sweetness here that makes it easy to sip, with soft strawberry fruitiness and a lightweight touch of tannin. Not complex but quaffable.
(2009) Corvina 60%, Rondinella 30%, other local grapes 10%. Dusty, very slightly vegetal and green notes, with cherry fruit. Fruity, red fruits and cherry palate, dry, but slightly anonymous. Nice savoury tannin and acidity, with a hint of spice though a slightly harsh finish.
(2001) Pasqua do a light, refreshing Chardonnay at this same low price that Ive enjoyed in the past. This has a light cream and cherry-fruited nose. The palate has modest fruit, but is well-balanced, with juicy acidity, some tannins and a cherryish quality. This would make a fine glugging wine for pasta or pizza.
