2017 Dirty Black Denim Sangiovese Novello

Heathcote, VIC

Light, bright and joyful Sangiovese from an exciting young producer.



About The Wine

Here's a fresh faced look at the Sangiovese grape from two QLD boys who are making some really interesting juice.

The fruit is from the Galli Estate vineyard in Sunbury. Lawrence Scanlon (one half of the Dirty Black Denim brothers) worked at Galli in 2014 and loves the fruit that comes from this site.

Here the boys are going for a smashable, easy going table wine. Nothing too serious but it's frisky and fresh, made with no new oak and no additions (including sulphur).

It's a new look for Victorian Sangio. Natural wine lovers, get around it!

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Super fresh-feeling, light cherry pip and a hint of herby stuff. It's light and crunchy but still looks like Sangio. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Juicy as. Playful as. Chuck it in the fridge if you like, a slight chill won't hurt it one bit. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

As always, sourced from Galli Estate in Heathcote. Picked early, 3 days on skins then pressed into old wood. 1 year on light lees. Zero S02 and zero adds.

In the past, we've been among to make fun, light, vin du soif. But in 2017 we worked the skins a bit more in order to grab a bit more tannin and add structure. As a result, the colour is a bit darker as is the fruit profile
