Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal 2020 is an interesting and unique blend of 41% Sangiovese; 26% Nebbiolo; 14% Pinot Noir; 10% Barbera, 9% Shiraz and 6% Mourvedre. Dried violet, iron oxide and earthy forest growth accent a firm and well defined tannin. Focussed and meaty textures leaves a lasting impression of effortless weight. Reserved, yet boasting fine intensity and exciting length, hints at rewarding potential lying in wait.
Ageing Potential: Drink now through to 2033
Food Pairing: Hannibal is a hugely versatile match for a range of dishes, but it works especially well with Indian and other spicy cuisine. Pair it with a Cape Vegetable Biryani, Mauritian seafood Vindaye or simply goats cheese served on brioche toast.
Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties in 1989 led to the development of this highly successful blend, with the first commercial launch of the Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.
