Vintage Excellent winter rains and good fruit set was a good sign for a healthy vintage. Summer was mild to warm with a couple of rain events during January & February helped freshen things up leading into March harvest.
Packed with Sangiovese high fragrances of dark cherry and sweet spices. The flavours flow on from the aromatics which are full, delicious and savoury with a lovely juicy, bright refreshing palate and fine tannin lift with oak in minor. A lovely food table wine.
Wine Making Made via a mixture of whole berry and 30% whole bunch wild yeast ferment in small open top fermenters, soft pump overs, basket pressed and bottled unfiltered.
