Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
A spiced cherry nose typical of Sangiovese, and a lovely depth of fruit on the palate.
It is taut and sinewy yet has good weight and length.
The wine reminds Alberto more of young Brunello than of Chianti, and for this reason he wanted to age it in barrel for two years prior to bottling.
This wine can be enjoyed now or carefully stored for up to 5 years.
“The 2007 Sangiovese (tasted as a barrel sample and due for release in a few months) is even better; made from new Tuscan clones of the Sangiovese vine, it is a heavenly mix of Heathcote sandalwood aromatics and the most amazing, fine, powdery tannic grip that gently hugs your tongue and refuses to let go. It’s a new benchmark of Sangiovese in Australia.” Max Allen, The Weekend Australian Magazine, March 22-23, 2009

....This is lovely stuff: radiant red cherry and redcurrant, wild herbs and succulent acidity....
