Duca Del Frassino Wine Boxes

Winter is finally leaving! We’ve started seeing some nice weather and soon people will soon be picnicing in the parks. This past Sunday was Easter, which means entertaining starts picking up here at the Jersey shore. When I serve a holiday meal I like to offer a wine or beverage, just to have a glass and toast with. The problem I have with wine bottles is that usually we can’t get the cork back in correctly and the wine doesn’t taste that great a few days later. When I learned about Duca Del Frassino, an Italian wine that comes in a box.

ABOUT DUCA DEL FRASSINO

Duca del Frassino, Italy’s premium wine in a box is the ideal wine for entertaining. These fun, fresh wines come in boxes containing the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine, plenty for all at your gathering!

Durello/Chardonnay and Merlot/Pinot Noir are the newest additions to the line’s already popular Garganega/Pinot Grigio and Cabernet Sauvignon/Corvina blends. Each varietal is fresh, light and the perfect companion for picnic springtime fare.

MY THOUGHTS

I received a box of the Duca Del Frassino Durello Chardonnay wine. I love that this wine has eco-friendly, recyclable packaging! Each three liter box contains the euivalenbt of four bottles or twenty glasses of wine. It’s certainly much easier to shop for and store one box instead of multiple bottles when you’re planning a gettogether. To serve the wine you insert the push button spout thingey (yes, that’s the technical term for it), and then push the button down causing wine to dispense from the spout.  Because of that spout the wine will keep for a couple of weeks, something that you can’t say with a bottle that you couldn’t get to recork or seal properly after opening. The wine I received was very crisp and dry. The taste lingers with a little bit of an after taste. It was probably not the best choice to serve with ham (but that is my fault), it would have complemented fish or fowl much better. I’m looking forward to trying the other three varieties of this wine.

Duca del Frassino wines  retail for $19.99 and are available nationwide.

I remember back when all soda came in glass bottles–long before either cans or plastic. It tasted so much better because its lavor wasn’t affacted by the container. Wonder if the wine would have the same problem.
