WINE OF THE WEEK
Greenstone Rosso di Colbo Sangiovese 2011
The Greenstone vineyard is the result of a lot of know how, experimentation and breaking a few ‘rules’. There is a strong focus on producing good quality Sangiovese (to good results it would appear!) but of course in Heathcote you have to give Shiraz some floor space too.
|A great example of Sangiovese.|
This wine was one of the highlights from Saturday’s tasting at Mezzo. It is everything I want from a great Sangiovese. This could give more than a few Chiantis a run for their money! It is savoury, dry and lean with a nice acid backbone. It shows dark fruits, a hint of oak and a light floral note. Brilliant drinking! It went particularly well with Mezzo’s wild boar ragu!
$31ea – Cheaper by the dozen. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or orders.
