2007 Montrose Pietra Sangiovese Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh 92 Rob Geddes MW 85
  • Montrose is a Mudgee original. It was the trailblazer for the region, and there is more than a few cuttings (especially of barbera and sangiovese) from the vineyards in other wine regions of NSW. Pietra in Italian for 'stone', which relates to the soil in the vineyard, and shows aromas of preserved cherries, meaty and earthy savouriness, and dried oregano on the nose. Meanwhile, the palate is more medium-bodied, dry and more savoury than fruit, with mellowing tannins, friendly acidity, and a lick of taosty oak on the respectable finish. This is a straight-out food wine, and would be great with some osso buco.

  • Typically bright, fresh fruit and soft tannins backed by crisp acidity - a hallmark of the variety.
  • Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh says:

    We thought last year's inaugural release was overpriced, but this year's release is a serious step up in quality. If you have a passion for sangiovese, you'll love it. It has all the dry, leathery, tangy characters that sangio lovers seek. It tastes of sweet-sour cherries and lots and lots of cracked, red earth (we promise, it does), and it hums with mouth-drying, almost gamey, nutty tannin. Oak is present but unobtrusive, and it finishes with a satisfying bite of flavour.
