Sangiovese is a much-loved variety but many examples can be a little difficult to tuck into in their youth.
This is a superb little Sangio that has been built for immediate enjoyment. The signature Sangiovese structure is all still there, but the juiciness of the fruit maintained here by winemaker Ben Crossing is what moves this squarely into ‘glugable’ territory.
This is the perfect Thursday night pizza wine, the perfect BBQ wine, the perfect anything-you-want-it-to-be wine.
What It Tastes Like
Smells of red earth, soaking black cherry, twigs and a bit of BBQ meat. The fruit is ripe and plump, plenty of joy in the sweetness of the fruit and the drying finish. The ropes of tannin lash the sides of the tongue so there plenty of varietal character there - It’s sangio that you can get at young without your teeth falling out.
The grapes were de-stemmed with 20% left as whole berries. The must was pumped over twice daily to increase colour and flavour. The wine was matured in French oak.

About the Producer
Angullong is at once one of Orange’s most consistent and innovative producers. Family owned and led by hard-working frontman Ben Crossing, Angullong’s range contains classic Orange varieties like Sauv Blanc and Shiraz, but it’s their exploration of alternative grapes like Barbera, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and Savagnin that really excites us. All their wines represent outstanding value for money.
The wine scene in Orange is alive and kicking. With each vintage that passes the bar of quality is raised again and again. Pinot Noir is a potential champion for the region but for now Shiraz, Chardonnay, Riesling and Cabernet are the flag bearers. The cool climate and the high altitude vineyards are producing wines of finesse and class and there is some ripping value to be had in this region.
