Description

Foster e Rocco is a wonderful team up between Adam Foster and Lincoln Riley. Sangiovese based wines made to be yummy and drinkable. On both counts they score big ticks. Their Foster e Rocco Sangiovese Rose is one of the best roses in Australia but their other projects with Sangiovese are not far behind. Best of all, every Foster e Rocco wines are released ready to drink and priced to sell.

The traditional and original expression of Foster e Rocco Sangiovese. It has the same winemaking as the Nuovo but is treated with a stay in mature French oak and held back for a further 6 months longer than the Nuovo. This is a great way to see how a winemaker can develop a wines personality.

Service

Pre pour a glass 20-40 minutes before you serve it. Keep it cooler for refreshment or a bit warmer to get the plush fruits.

Food Matches

Mushroom risotto would be my pick. But anything creamy and moderately rich will work well.

Heathcote

The glamour region of Victoria for lovers of big reds. And the core production is Shiraz and Cabernet with ‘guts’. But it is a region that offers a lot of diversity when you scratch the surface. The cooler southern parts border Macedon and make lovely aromatic wines. There is a lot of experimentation and adoption of more drought resistant Italian varieties to great effect too.

Sangiovese

Widely cultivated across Italy from Emilia-Romagna to Campania and producing as much wine as Barbera. A wide range of clones and hugely diverse growing conditions sees the variety represent easy drinking ‘quaffers’, all the way to benchmarks such as Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti, Sangiovese di Romagna and Morellino di Scansano.
