Description

This Sangiovese, crafted with fruit from from Dixon's Creek, is a belter. It's an electric, nervy example of the variety. The 100% whole bunch ferment might seem like madness when applied to Sangiovese - the variety has tannin in spades.

For some reason, though, it works an absolute treat in this wine. It's a lighter expression than you might expect, the juice shines ruby red in the glass. The fruit is sweet and spicy, the tannins are super fine and detailed.

It's a one-of-a-kind Sangiovese from a one of a kind winemaker.

Sangio scents of red berries, cherry, bloody game meat, white pepper, dried, mixed Italian herbs. Juicy in the palate, riper red berry fruit characters but again the herbs, spice, gamey-savouriness, and amongst all that a weave of graphite-tinged, lacy tannin. Finishes dry, spicy, savoury, after that pleasurable juicy start. Yummo. 94pts - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
