Review and Rating: *** Chez Ray Luna Rossa "Kit" Wine, 2002, CT

Review: This is one of my early fermentation ventures, made from a bag of red grape juice in a kit called the Selection Luna Rossa Wine Kit.

In the glass, it is deep magenta red, moving to opaque in center. No bricking or orange at rim yet. Aroma is deep, with the distinctive "kit wine" candy sweetness.

On the palate, extremely round, full mouth, no tannins or acids to really speak of, and a remarkably fast, totally clean finish. Slightly sweet mouthfeel overall. I'll give it three stars out of five, but don't see additional potential in aging. Not that it's past its time - just that I don't see further benefit of age.
