About

Sam Scott's affinity with Italian varieties began with his first encounter with Sangiovese. It's a variety which many winemakers struggle their whole with. With this release, Sam has absolutely nailed it. The trick with Sangiovese is to maintain drinkability, harnessing the power and tannin inherent in the variety and making approachable, accessible versions which suit our Australian palates. As Cambell Mattinson noted in his review of this release, "There’s tannin, there’s fruit, there’s spice. It’s light to look at but there’s plenty going on. La prove always nails a good style of wine." This is one of the most charming versions of this variety to be found anywhere in the country, ideal for enthusiasts and newcomers to the variety, alike.

What it Tastes Like

"There’s tannin, there’s fruit, there’s spice. It’s light to look at but there’s plenty going on. La prove always nails a good style of wine. Sweet-sour cherries, chicory, woodspice, leather, some dried tobacco. Maybe a lick of fennel. In any case it’s savoury but has some fruit, some flesh. It’s terribly good drinking." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
