If you’re not so good on your Italian, this translates to “Red Stone.” A tribute to the iron oxide rich and rocky soils where this fruit is grown. There’s a vintage roll over to the 2017, but there’s probably a bit of this still out there.
Pizzini, Pietra Rossa, Sangiovese, King Valley, 2016
A kernel of hazlenut and twiggy wood with deep cherry wrapping, fresh garden herbs, light sarsaparilla/cola. A suave Italian: those fennel edged, savoury qualities support delicious dark cherry and hints of balsamic richness. The tannins drying enough for food friendliness without overpowering the fruit. A wine for the table, friends and food
