The Wine

Heart Breaker. Katrina Pizzini. 1970. A time for first cars, new freedoms, fresh optimism, big opportunities. Selected from our most exceptional—most mature—sites, this highly finessed Sangiovese is elegantly refined with brilliant sculptural definition. Additional complexity builds up to 20 years.


The grapes for this wine have been hand selected from a small section within leading blocks of Sangiovese. The grapes are handpicked then crushed and de-stemmed to an oak barrel fermenter which helps stabilise colour and tannin. A yeast strain selected from Brunello di Montalcino is added, providing body and mouthfeel. The wine is then drained to French oak barrels where it matures for 18 months before bottling and then a further 2 years before release.
