DWR-09 – Gran Appasso Rosso 2017 Tasting and Review

Drink With Rick

This is the ninth episode of the live winestream. I open, taste and review a Gran Appasso Rosso 2017 Italian red wine purchased from Sunset & Vine in Blowing Rock, NC. I also tell you why I don’t like the smell of incense, why I think we have natural cravings for certain foods, our experience visiting the bookstore at Appalachian University during Free Comic Book Day, and our experiences visiting the town of Blowing Rock, North Carolina.

This podcast is the audio version of the video winestream, edited with consideration for the listener. Did I enjoy the wine? Do I recommend it? Listen to find out. Do you have a favorite wine you would recommend? Is there a wine you are curious about and would like me to try? Tell me what it is and I may give it a review on a future Winestream.
