My first ever 100% Sangiovese. Over the years I have spent a lot of time blending my many vintages of Sangiovese, often I have added a little Cabernet Sauvignon or even a little Shiraz or Malbec. I guess I thought the Australian red drinker wanted a little more colour and body. I have picked the ideal vintage to let Sangiovese express it’s unique flavour profile!
Gently crushed to ensure fine fruit tannins and placed into 3 year old French oak barrels previously used for white wine. Matured for 15 months.
Colour – Light and bright red, see it glistening in the glass.
Aroma – The nose is a perfume of roses and herbs.
Palate – Sweet and sour characters that blend together to make it exceptionally balanced. Liquorice allsorts and capers bounce out on the palate and makes for easy drinking.
Absulotely perfect with pasta, pizza or even just a BBQ or meat plate. I’ll have it anytime with a plain hot pepperoni thin crust pizza.
Best Drinking 3-5 years
