A smart example of Sangio. Earth, cherries, hints of mineral and pepper and a nice red fruited plushness. There is a lot going on here. The tannins have been tamed somewhat, I assume the bottle age has helped. I’d serve this with a traditional, sparsely populate pizza. Drink it over the next 24 months – no rush, it’s just not got a lot of improvement left.
Established in 1989 and continuing a legacy of quality wines from their base in the King Valley. Elegant wines from carefully chosen plots all of the Alpine Valley area. What more can you ask for?
King Valley – A picturesque region near Victoria’s snow fields that offers cooler climate wines. A strong Italian heritage in the area means there are a lot of Italian varieties grown.
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.
