92 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion
A red Italian grape variety from Tuscany with bold colour and long legs. Well balanced with a medium body and soft, powdery tannins.
Colour

Bright red.

Tasting Notes

Bright red colour with long legs. Well balanced with a bit of natural residual sugar to round up an innate, zesty acidity, typical of cool climate Sangiovese. This wine exudes a wide range of aromas such as red cherries, plums, and ripe figs. Oak barrels supplied fantastic tarry notes and scents of white pepper. It has a medium body, round and filled with silky tannins. 

Food Matching

This wine would be best served with spaghetti marinara, chicken cacciatore, and creamy casseroles.

Cellaring

Great now as a baby, and will be amazing when she grows up.

Winemaking

Sourced from 15 years old vines planted on limestone and sandy gravel, located on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 300 metres. The grapes were machine harvested in mid-April, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tank. Fermentation took place over 17 days with selected yeast, and then transferred into French and American oak barrels (three and four years old). The wine was kept on lees contact for a further three months. Finally after five months the wine was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
