Fizzy weird vinegar flavor. Worst wine I’ve ever tried. Stay away

Sour and frizzy

I opened my bottle all ready to try this Sicilian wine and when I opened it, it overflowed like if it was a prosecco. I know that these grapes are not frizzy wine grapes and it smelt really sour. I would like to receive a refund

Wine was a excellent change to the usual wines we find in town. Can’t taste some others from traveling vineyard

Good at tasting event, not at home

I sampled this at a tasting party and loved it. Ordered a bottle and when we opened it was carbonated, fizzy, and vinegary. Not at all like I had tasted, was disappointed.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy

Unfortunately I did not enjoy this wine - It's the only Merlot I have ever tasted that I did not care for.

Scusami Wine

Decent full body wine but had a undesirable effervescent.

Flavor varied

This was DELICIOUS at the tasting which was why I purchased! However upon receiving the taste was quite different. Did taste "quite right" had almost a vinegar carbonated flavor? Not completely undrinkable but definitely not true to what I initially tasted
