cracka review

100% pure Sangiovese is what this wine is all about, baby! And at the price point, this little puppy over-delivers in every way. Rich ripe smells of black cherries, anise spice and toasty oak rise from the glass, whilst the palate is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and sexy with red and black berried flavours, generous licks of mocha, dusty tannins, and a dry, savoury-edged finish. It will cellar for a couple more years, but would be great with cured meats.

winemaker's notes

Colour: Deep ruby red with violet hues

Bouquet: Fruity, ample and complex with typical notes of red ripe fruits combined with the oak scents originated by ageing in barrels

Flavour: Pleasant and well balanced, it has a good structure. The soft tannins lead to a sapid, fruity and persistent aftertaste

Grapes: Sangiovese, locally called "Brunello"

Alc/vol: 14.0%
