Tasting Notes: A play on the phrase "I came, I saw, I conquered" (but this is I came, I saw, I drank), the 2018 Viti Vini Bibi is a delicious, highly drinkable light to medium-bodied red. This has a deeper nose than Laguzelle, showing more blue and black fruit. The palate is flavorful and juicy. Overall, it is riper than Laguzelle but balanced with excellent freshness and acidity. Very delicious.
