Tobacco Road 2017 Sangiovese Barbera - Gapsted Wines

"As a Euro-style quaffer you couldn't really ask for more - it's herbal life suits the bright and fresh fruit bite in a sour cherry and crunchy plum profile of flavours, with just enough old-oak impact for further sweetly spicy interest as you sip."
 
Tony Love, published in the Herald Sun (31 July, 2018)

 

VINEYARD REGION: King Valley

THE WINE: The blend of these two traditional Italian varieties works beautifully, highlighting the best characters of each variety. This wine displays a deep garnet colour. The nose shows aromas of ripe spicy plum, sour cherry and violets. These aromas lead to a palate which has rich fruit flavours, balanced by some savoury notes and complemented by toasty oak. A medium-bodied wine with fine-grained tannins. Ideal for immediate consumption or short-term cellaring.    

FOOD MATCHES: Enjoy with hearty Italian dishes, such as Osso Bucco or simply fresh crusty bread with your favourite Italian cheese.
