Getting the EP WS Rosso Grande Eccellente in the next week or so. Never heard of this kit before, so I guess it might be new. Anyone else started this kit? I'll keep everyone updated.

This kit has been available for a few years. Wine made from this kit has taken several medals in the annual Wine Maker Magazine competition, the most recent being a 2016 silver medal in the Other Red Vinifera Blends category.

Enjoy your wine making with this kit. I'm sure that you'll be pleased with the result.

We made this back in July of 2015. We've recently started to open the occasional bottle. It's already decent at this point, with some age it should be Grande Eccellente.

Very nice kit that I have made more than once. Last weekend I bottled one that was aged in the carboy for 1 year. Quite drinkable at this point with just a bit of tartness. Another year in the bottle and it will be Eccellente!
