About The Wine
Jo Marsh is a virtuoso winemaker when it comes to nursing Italian varieties to bottle.
The problem with many Australian examples of Sangiovese is that they lack vibrancy, not the case here. This is a juicy, loveable version of Sangiovese with plenty of charm.
Jo uses five different clones from two different Alpine Valleys vineyards to get just the right amount of light and shade in this release.
If you're looking for the perfect pizza night wine, this is pretty hard to go past.
About Billy Button
Billy Button is the charming Alpine Valleys based project of ubertalented winemaker Jo Marsh, now helped by her winemaker husband Glenn James and young winemaker Alex Phillips.
Billy Button focuses primarily on producing small batches of alternative varieties from good local growers in their small patch of Victoria. The team explores varieties that are rarely seen in the Australian landscape - you can find anything from Schioppettino to Verduzzo in this eclectic range.
Jo's gentle touch in the winery makes for beautifully balanced wines that show great texture and vibrancy. The Billy Button range is a little gem of North East Victoria. It's one of the more unique wine ranges in the country and the perfect place to begin your exploration of alternative varieties.
