Pizzini, Pietra Rossa, Sangiovese, King Valley 2014

2014-pietra-rossa

Deep ruby claret. Sweetly herbed fruit: star anise, liqueur raspberry, cherries and chocolatey oak. Lightly bodied with plenty of soft red fruits and an almost giocoso lilt. Lingering soft anise and plentiful micro-tannins. Nicely valued, it doesn’t lower its colours by resorting to bluff using overly ripe fruit. Simply made for the salumi. Saluté.

RRP: $28

Alc: 13.5%
