About The Wine
No family in Australia has done more for the continued emergence of Italian grape varieties than the Chalmers, and this wine is about as Italian as an Aussie wine gets!
Their entry level Montevecchio label is all about approachable, food friendly wines, inspired by the everyday drinking 'field blends' of Italy.
The Rosso is just a brilliant example of what their approach is all about. It's a blend of Nero d’Avola, Sangiovese, Lagrein, Schioppettino and Lambrusco Maestri.
With its savoury nature and minimal oak it really is the perfect pizza / pasta wine.
No family in Australia has done more for the continued emergence of alternative grape varieties than the Chalmers.
Since the mid-1980's Bruce and Jenni Chalmers have been responsible for importing up to 70 alternative varieties into Australia, culminating in them establishing the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in 1999.
They are true visionaries of the Australian wine scene and we are eternally grateful for their forward thinking and courage to bravely plant what no one had planted before them.
They brought with them the first ripples of the tsunami of Italian varieties hitting the Australian market.
