Sangiovese

A pure and classic Sangiovese made in the new world. This wine has a great depth of colour and a wonderful complex palate structure. Beginning with upfront, juicy maraschino cherry fruit, it has a long line of fine acidity and tannin that lingers. Savoury yet sweet, the finish of spice and fruit is balanced and enhanced with a toasty hint from new oak. This wine will improve with age – decant one now and put a dozen in the cellar.

Sangiovese Rosé

The nose offers pure, fresh characters of red berry compote with strawberries and cream. Bright and tight in its youth, it will soften over time with a long, dry, savoury finish. Serve chilled (the wine too).
