So I HATE when I try a new wine and HATE it.
This first one was delightful. Was brought to me as a gift, so no idea from where or how much.
I know next to nothing about Italian wines, so I don't usually go for them. This one was good. The other one, not so much.
Ruggero di Classo
Nero d'Avola 2007
From the bottle: "100% of grapes from South-western Sicily. Berry character with soft tannis and a lightly jammy finish"
Fruity, jammy, a little sweet. The description describes it well.
This one, not so good:
Chateau St Jean
Also a gift. Too dry, too herby/earthy.
