Sangiovese 2016, Coriole

£15.50 per bottle

About this wine

Sangiovese was pioneered in Australia by Coriole Vineyards with the first plantings in 1985.  The fruit is sourced from some of the oldest producing Sangiovese vines in Australia with the 2016 vintage being Coriole’s 30th consecutive Sangiovese release. A bright and fragrant nose of sour cherry and bay leaf with a whiff of aniseed. The palate is of medium weight with juicy red fruits and sweet herbs framed by chalky tannin, refreshing acidity and an impressive long finish.  An extremely versatile wine that will accompany a whole range of dishes from cured meats and tomato based pastas through to oily fish or slow cooked lamb.

    string(696) "Italy’s great red varietal and certainly ubiquitous in its homeland. Sangiovese has a beautifully sleek flavour profile of red cherries and earthy aromas of tea leaf. Though not as aromatic as Pinot Noir or Syrah, it does marry extremely well to oak and is particularly favoured as a foil in Cabernet-based blends. The ‘Super Tuscan’ movement in the 1970s and ’80s, led by wines such as Antinori’s Tignanello, recognised the strengths of Sangiovese when paired with international varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The growth of popularity has seen it appear in countries like Australia, where stunning examples can be found in McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra."
