Description

Deep garnet with a ruby edge. This wine has fresh lifted aromas of dark plum, raspberry overlaying red cherry and subtle oak. Vibrant cherry and raspberry fruits layer over brooding dark choc gravelly tannins. Basket pressed and bottled in late 2014 after extended maturation in small format seasoned French oak barrels.

Comments from Our Wine Buyer: The Romans use to drink it so why shouldn’t we! Sangiovese dates to roman times and we have been extremely lucky to get a hold of some back vintage 2013 from one of Australia’s most awarded wineries. This Sangiovese is rich and full with soft tannins and a very smooth finish. I love it with a good tapas plate. My score 95/100 - WACC Trophy.
