Pizzini Nona Gisella Sangiovese 2013
Love the revamped Pizzini Sangiovese line. Good packaging too. This wine is named after Nonna Gisella, who was Alf Pizzini’s grandmother. Nonna Gisella was ‘strong, warm and loving’.
Dark ruby coloured, there is a little leather to go along with the Sangiovese cherry here, an immediate step up the Sangio tree, if still very much a wine of berry fruit. Lovely savoury touch here, making for a wine that couples tangy red fruit, a little vanilla and plenty enough leathery savouriness. Nice, clearly varietal Sangio. Maybe slightly sweet on the finish, but has character and easy appeal. Drink: 2015-2023. 17/20, 90/100
Details: 13.8%, Screwcap, $21.50CD, Sample
Would I buy it? I’d drink a few glasses.
