Sangiovese 2015

$24.00

Its name, derived from the Latin sanguis Jovis, “the blood of Jove”. This tells us the colour is a brick red, not a purple or deep burgundy. It is also known as the main component of Chianti. At home it’s our every day dinner drink.

You just can’t beat it with tomato based pizza and pasta. That bitter-sweet maraschino cherry flavour works well with these types of food.

Tasting Notes

TASTE

 

A classic example of a fruit forward wine, our Brunello di Montalcino clone brings out its particular wine taste of clove-spice, Oregano and CHERRIES with just a hint of bitter chocolate (at the end); it’s like drinking Christmas. Soft grainy tannins finish the wine. Sangiovese pairs with a wide range of foods because of its medium weighted body and savory character. Use sangiovese’s savory as a harmonizing flavor with herbs and tomatoes. This technique will actually bring out more fruity flavors in the wine.

 

IN THE GLASS

Colour: Light cherry red

Aroma: Pretty cherry fruit and herb aromas backed by vanilla and the savoury aromas of rosemary spice. We use light oak aging in neutral older oak barrels.

 

Palate: A nicely even balanced wine, softly textured, with lightly gripping tannins. The palette is of medium intensity, but long and persistent.

IN THE CELLAR

Best for immediate consumption but will improve with another year of cellaring, will last for 4 to 7 years.
