Style: Medium bodied red

Country: Australia

Overview 3 Italians crushed, fermented, pressed, aged in oak then bottled. Sounds like something from the God-Father or the Sopranos doesn’t it? This wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Primitivo (Zinfandel), these 3 varieties are widely grown in Italy and each display their own characters, nuances and difficulties. Because of this it is a wine that is a testament to great winemaking and blending. The seamless integration of a rustic dustiness of the Sangiovese, tannin structure of the Nebbiolo and fruit lift from the Primitivo makes this a delicious food wine.

 

Tasting note: Aromas of cherry and crushed rosemary from the glass with subtle hints of cedar. A savoury palate of cherry, herbs and menthol. Dusty finish with nice grainy tannins.

 

Final Say: $20-$25 a bottle. Buy or you’ll be sleeping with the fishes.

 

Score: 17.5 out of 20
