Pizzini Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 2014

Label translates as “Red Stone” and the cornerstone of the range from Sangiovese specialists, Pizzini.

Pizzini, Pietra Rossa, Sangiovese, King Valley 2014


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%
