2019 Vita Sangiovese

"A cull of vineyards, hand picked and and plunged in open-top vessels. Oak, all neutral, for 20 months. Very fine! I have been following the ebbs, potholes and flows of sangiovese here for a long time. This, more akin to an elevated expression rather than a grassroots chianti. Depth, vinosity and the edgy carriage of tannins and bright acid crunch that sets apart better wines, all raring. Sapid Bing cherry, thyme, mint and other garden herbs clatter along that jittery thread of tannin. Mocha notes assuage with a dollop of generosity, across a long finish. A confident evolution in full stride. 95 points"

Tasting Notes
A lifted nose with aromas of bramble, blackcurrant and aniseed. The palate is rich and complex with red fruits, fresh herbs and earthy tones. The finish is long with characteristic savoury tannin. A typical rustic sangiovese to be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 10 years.
Production Notes
Sangiovese was pioneered in Australia by Coriole Vineyards with the first plantings in 1985. It provided a contrasting style to Shiraz, the great tradition of McLaren Vale. It has proven to be ideally suited to the warm maritime climate of the region. Vita is a small bottling that is only produced in exceptional vintages.
