Country of Origin: Australia
Region: King Valley
Type: Red wine
Grape variety: Sangiovese
Sangiovese is the perfect red wine to drink in the tropics. Medium bodied, lighter fruit flavours, and lower alcohol than more commonly known reds, but great complexity, depth of flavour that can pair to charcuterie, pizza/pasta, and lamb dishes - try with Kaldertang kambing.
This vineyard blend of altitude, soil and vine age has created a wine with great depth, celebrating Sangiovese's distinct soft aromatic varietal character. The characteristic notes of dark baked cherries, blackberries and dry savoury tannins come to the fore. Its origins extend from Italy where it reaches the height of its power in wines such as Chiato Classico and the Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese Cabernet.
