About The Wine

Most folks know about Sangiovese in its Chianti format, but their near neighbours in Emilia-Romagna are just as capable with this grape.

With its silky red cherry fruit, dark liquorice notes and firm tannins, it’s a superb offering of this iconic Italian variety.

Whether partnered with a plate of prosciutto or a gutsy beef ragù, this is great value, bright savoury red you’ll make quick work of.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
