Rugerro Di Tasso Nero D'Avola 2008 review by (PB)
Sour pie cherry bouquet and little fizz in the mouth. This is an odd wine from the bouquet to the palate. I loved the 2007 found at Trader Joe's and at $6 it was a great value. This 2008 is just strange. It tastes like it hasn't finished fermentation like a new wine.
The 07 was a very classic Nero D'Avola while this is just weird. I'll have to buy another bottle and check to see if this is an outlier. It's not offensive and some people would love it chilled down, but it doesn't taste like what it should taste like so pass on this until and unless I review another.
