2018 Pizzini – Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 750ml
$28.00 inc. GST
The Wine: Pietra Rossa is Italian for red stone in reference to the soils the fruit for this wine comes from. Vibrant and mouth-watering aromas of cherries, raspberries and sweet herbs follow through onto the beautifully structured palate. It is juicy, fleshy and very drinkable.
Wine making: The Sangiovese grapes are machine picked and then fermented with a yeast called BM45, made famous in Tuscany for making great Brunello wines. The ferment temperatures reach and are maintained at, 30°C to extract flavour and colour and to soften tannins. After fermentation, the free-run juice is drained and skins are lightly pressed. The wine settles for a day before being transferred to barrels for malic acid fermentation and barrel aging for 14 months before blending and bottling.
