I Fiori Cannonau di Sardegna

A medium-bodied Cannonou di Sardegna is this “I Fiori” by Pale. For a Grenache it is on the light side, but refined, with strawberry and raspberry flavours and light soft tannines. Offers good value for money! — 5 days ago

Shy nose. Rocks and minerals, but not much fruit. A little peach. Some (pleasant) bitterness and saltiness. Very good, though for the price not sure it rivals some of the better NV grower champagne. — 2 days ago

I love vintage Cava and Grower Champagne, both for their own unique qualities. Sadly, I dont drink either often enough.
