Heartland Wines Sposa e Sposa 2016

A marriage of Dolcetto (45%) and Lagrein. A completely unique blend: no other of its kind even in Italy, the indigenous home of the two varietals.

Heartland Wines, Sposa e Sposa, Dolcetto, Lagrein, Langhorne Creek, 2016

Green pepper corn, coconut husk, vanilla cola, ginger beer, mulberry, tinned plums, wood fence paling. Plenty of spice! Full bodied: swathes of cotton wrap tannins around the dark berry fruit, kissed with that sweet oak. Gutsy, but remains classy with a peppery spice finish.

RRP: $19
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 16.75/20
