Pizzini Sangiovese 2011 King Valley
The Pizzini label is one that represents the savvy initiative of the family. Not only do they make great wines – including some of the best Italian varietals I’ve tasted outside of Italy but offer a great cellar door experience. Particularly if you are lucky enough to be able to attend one of their cooking courses. The cellar door is housed in the now defunct tobacco factory overlooking the glorious & bucolic rolling hills and is welcoming to all & family.
This is but one of their Sangioveses which also include a very gluggable Sangiovese Shiraz blend. Fresh & fragrant with ripe cherries & raspberries, red liquorice, perfumed with some spicy oak in support. 100% Sangiovese, this is a medium bodied style with elegance & silky tannins. A very food friendly wine but don’t let that stop you opening one without food.
