Camenere is my new love affair. These amazing wine comes at such an awesome price. Think of it as Old School cabernet sauvignon dominant Bordeaux, but younger, edgier, and cheaper. Typical of Camenere, the wine is notably astringent, firm tannin, and savory flavours. These can't be aged. Drink them ASAP.

Quality: Acceptable
