Pizzini Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 2015

Label translates as “Red Stone” due to the iron oxide rich and rocky soils where this fruit is grown, and from “an absolutely cracking vintage” according to the Pizzinis. 20% new oak maturation.

Pizzini, Pietra Rossa, Sangiovese, King Valley, 2015


Deep ruby coloured in the glass. A veritable shop front of spices: with cloves, nutmeg and dried mixed herbs before ripe plums and meatier, savoury leather notes. Fresh and fruity: Plums, brambly blackberry, cherry cola hints, choc/oak influence and lingering spices. Crowd pleasing micro-tannins that run right up the middle of the tongue before refreshing acidity cleans it all up and leaves you wanting more.

RRP: $28
Alc: 13.8%
Rating: /20
