Jankara Colli del Limbara “Lu Nieddu” IGT
A blend of Caricaggiola, Pascale, Cannonau, Dolcetto, Barbera, Cabernet Franc. The color is deep and impenetrable, with a wonderful array of dark fruits and a touch of vanilla on the nose, the palate is rich, dense and intense with a great balance between tannins, alcohol and acidity, which translate into a very persistent ﬁnish.
