No Tasting Note On This One - Did Not Taste
Based on the description from my importer who tasted all of these, I am looking forward to tasting this one. The intensity is closely aligned to the Nigheddu (search on this website) with a little more structure and slightly darker red fruits. Sounds like another winner to me!
