Sangiovese from the Hoffmann vineyard in the Barossa Valley picked early for freshness and natural acidity. One portion saw an extended macerationfor deeper flavour and softer tannin, the remaining half was pressed earlierfor brighter fruit and “tannino croccante”. Sent to old oak to get a littleplumper and increase the “quality of flavour”.
An enthusiastic, vibrant and devoutly Catholic red wine for drinking with il diavolo and pepperoni pizza (Dominos probably) in bed. Cherries, plums, cigar box spice and dry tannin. Yummo. - Giovanni Armani Giorgio
