Sangiovese is the kind of wine that screams out for a nice tomatoey Italian dish. It's medium-boded with smells and flavours of sour red cherries, dried herbs and licks of meatiness, all propped up by dusty tannins, bright acidity, and a dry, savoury-edged finish. Highly glugable!
Sangiovese Tasting Notes:
A vibrant brick colour in the glass with a nose of
dusty red fruit and sweet black cherry the 2011
Chalmers sangiovese looks every bit the part of a
‘chianti classico’ style. Medium weight with meaty
savouriness and herbal notes, the palate shows
both sweet and sour cherry with a clean finish of
grainy, mouth-coating tannin.
Sangiovese Food Matching:
The mouthwatering acidity and sweet-sour palate
of this wine makes if perfect for dishes with spice,
richness or a tomato based sauce.
