2017 Capisce Sangiovese
An intense depth of colour gives away the power in this wine.
The scents of wild flora and earth exude from the glass, reflecting McLaren Vale’s terroir, before giving way to brooding dark cherry notes. As the Sangiovese opens in the glass, the skin of crisp Red Delicious apples and toffee appear together with blackcurrant pastille and clove. Herbal notes persist on the palate with firm, chalky tannins adding to the texture, finishing with lingering spice, vibrancy and freshness.
A perfect pairing to local Calabrese salami infused with wild fennel as you graze away a summer day on the pergola. In cooler seasons, this wine will complement richer fare; think braised beef ragu, chicken liver crostini and coq au vin…
It is as cellar-worthy as it is drinkable today.
