Di Giorgio Wines is a small family owned & operated winery in the heart of Coonawarra. Their winery is the 2nd oldest in the region with vines planted as early as 1963 on prime, shallow Terra Rossa soil in their 13.5 hectare property. The Di Giorgio Family are 5th generation winemakers that trace their origins to the small town of Secinaro in Abbruzzo, Italy. In addition to producing premium wines from Coonawarra and Lucindale, Di Giorgio sources specific varietal fruit from different areas of the Limestone Coast where they believe the terroir is best suited to certain grape varieties. This is a sturdy, cellar worthy wine boasting aromas of currants, blackberries, dried flowers, and an abundance of dried herbs & earthy spice scents. This is a finely wound & polished wine with great fruit purity, chalky tannins, & smoky oak spice. We recommend decanting of this wine for 1 to 2 hours before drinking and, with careful cellaring, this wine will continue to drink well until 2034.
These wines are medium bodied, displaying silky supple tannins, integrated acid, defined fruit characters and a satisfying lingering palate _ characteristics that are evident in both young and aged Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
