A jovial, approachable and smashable blend of Barbera, Nebbiolo and - making its debut - Sangiovese from the Clare Valley.
About The Wine
This is Brendan and Laura Carter's tribute to the Northern Italian reds they love, but in the drink-instantly style that Unico Zelo is famous for.
It's a blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and for the first time, Sangiovese. As you might expect, it's a wine built for sheer, joyous drinkability, with a savoury backbone making it great alongside a myriad of foods.
If you're after a moreish light-to-medium red with a bit of x-factor, then this is just a no-brainer.
About Unico Zelo
Unico Zelo is the project of winemaking couple Brendan and Laura Carter. In their words, their aim is to create “Italian-inspired, textural and site-expressive wines” and “Australian examples of Mediterranean varieties in an approachable and jovial fashion.”
Since bursting onto the scene in 2014 with their eye-catching, outrageously good value alternative vino, the Carters have spread their wings and their range.
They now make a large suite of wines, including single vineyard examples of Fiano, Nero d'Avola and Nebbiolo.
They are one of the most dynamic winemaking duos in the Adelaide Hills.
