The release of Vinea Marson’s 2015 Sangiovese marks a return to 100% single vineyard fruit sourced from the twelve clones in our sotto & sopra estate vineyard. Deep garnet in colour, the Sangiovese possesses bright red fruit aromas of dark cherries and ripe raspberries alongside savoury notes of vanilla bean pod, nutmeg and dried herbs.
On the palate a spectrum of cherries and cranberries show the potential of this distinctive food wine. Concluding with savoury tannins and a slightly bitter finish, this is indeed a wine that proudly wears its Italian style. Enjoy with pizza, pasta with veal ragu or porchetta. An ageworthy red, the Sangiovese can be enjoyed now or cellared for 10-15 years.
‘It has the right mix of dried herbs, cherry fruit and spice, yet stays in savoury territory. The appealing palate is more medium-bodied with lithe, grainy tannins and fresh acidity keeping everything tight.’
