Alfred and Katrina Pizzini's vision was to establish a winery which can deliver fine Italian varietal wines within the context of King Valley. Sangiovese is one of the more tannic, firmly structured Italian red varietals. It has indeed found familiar surrounds and a happy new home in the elevated aspects of Victoria's King Valley. Since planting their first Sangiovese vines, Pizzini have introduced seven new clones to seven vineyards, which translates into better wines. Identifying unique sites which are favourable to Sangiovese and determining the specific clones to match the terroir are critical. Vines are trained to encourage the fruit to reach full physiological ripeness and flavour maturity with a balance of tannins.
Dark garnet red hue. Vibrant and fresh nose with lifted plums and spice, cherry and ripe red berries before herbal and savoury characters over delicate background oak. A smoky streak with bracken, woody spices and fresh, earthy complexity. The palate offers lovely chalky tannins that line the mouth with fresh, vibrant acidity. Persistent flavours of plum, spiced cherries and earthy tones continue to the lingering, clean and balanced finish.
