Sangiovese, with its Italian origins, has found a new home in Margaret River, with its climate and soils providing ideal growing conditions.
COLOUR: Brilliant translucent cherry hues.
NOSE: The nose is dominated by the red fruit spectrum - cherries, strawberries, roses, red fruits and just a hint of spice.
PALATE: A light dry palate with plenty of red fruit flavours and a fine tannin structure. Light-bodied, this wine typifies the Chianti wines so loved for their ability to pair with Italian foods and lighter food styles. The wine has medium-high acidity, with an emphasis on mid-palate fruit flavours, and good extension from the finish.
