Great Italian Wines 1943 Conterno

It is estimated that between September 1943 and April 1945, 60,000–70,000 Allied soldiers died in Italy. This wine is historic, we can only imagine how difficult a period it was in Europe.

Opened with Frank C from Etna for his 60th Birthday, the wine was light cherry, it had life and drank delicately, hints of leather and aged sherry, it was what I expected a memorable wine.

(No score: Just a wonderful chance to taste it with a friend)
