Triga Tasting Note
Triga is opaque purple color. Explosive aromas of black and blue fruits are transformed into notes of licorice, Indian spices and floral oils. Rich and long, it has a good acidity that gives it elegance. In the mouth, sweet blueberries and currants stain the palate with persistence in a pungent and concentrated finish.
