About The Wine

This blend may seem from the outside a little unconventional, but once you try it, it all just makes sense.

The 2014 La Prova Rosso is a wine made as your classic all-rounder. Here the three varieties all sing in perfect Italian harmony, a trio with a single cause.

The blending process tells a story says winemaker Sam Scott:

“the blue fruits and structure of Lagrein, the fragrance and savoury grip of Sangiovese, rounded out by the soft and juicy, crowd-pleasing Nero d’Avola.

It’s made for deep drinking rather than deep thinking - a medium bodied red with plenty of interest factor and top value for those exploring the tidal wave of Italian variety wines hitting Australian shelves.

What It Tastes Like

“Dates, ripe raspberry and blueberry, some black jelly beans, salt beef and leather. Kind of hard to describe, and get your head around, but it drinks well enough. It’s ripe, fleshy and powdery, quite beefy and almost stewed in flavour, but does have interest and a pretty good finish, all chalky with some freshness and amaro herb bitterness.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
