Sangiovese Shiraz

Sangiovese Shiraz 2018

Vinification
Some batches of Sangiovese were fermented at a warm 30°C to extract as much flavour, tannin and texture as possible while the remainder was fermented at a lower 23°C to help retain freshness and lifted fruit characters. The Shiraz was fermented separately at 25°C to extract more delicate aromatics and fruit flavour. Following fermentation both varieties were placed in stainless steel to mature and to impart freshness to the wine. The resulting wine is our “vino di tavola” Chianti style made for drinking now and every day.

 

Maturation
Type of maturation: stainless steel                         Fining agent: light egg white fining

The Wine
This wine has gorgeous ruby red colouring with a slight red brick hue. Initial aromas are of raspberries and cherries while closer inspection releases notes of roses and soft dried herbs. Juicy plums and raspberries fill your mouth and soft tannins combined with subtle notes of herbs and white pepper lead into a medium finish.
