2018 Pizzini Sangiovese Nonna Gisella
The winemaking involves a selection of techniques from cold maceration to maintain the fruit weight and freshness, and hot fermentation to add that typical Pizzini style to the wine. This wine is aged in a mixture of large format oak barrels and barriques with some batches aged in stainless steel tanks to maintain vibrancy and freshness.

This vibrant wine is brick red in colour with a cherry hue. The nose shows cherries and dried herbs, which follow through to spiced plums and dark chocolate characters. This fresh Sangiovese has a generous mouthfeel and rich flavours of plum, maraschino cherry and juicy raspberries, with delicate tannins finishing it perfectly. This wine is the ideal accompaniment to gnocchi Bolognese just like Nonna used to make.
