Pizzini Sangiovese Shiraz 2013
This is the entry level to Pizzini’s new extensive range of Sangiovese/Sangiovese blends. High five Pizzini for having a go at really celebrating Sangio.
On the back of the label this is described as a ‘light dry red wine’, which is about right.
Light mauve, this smells direct and gently juicy with a little caramelised red berry, black earth and cranberry. Light bodied, leathery varietal characters and a high acid finish mark this as a genuine Sangiovese style, if a simple one, punctuated with a little raspberry sweetness to finish.
Pleasant quaffer, without the depth to challenge for more. Drink: 2015-2021. 16/20, 87/100
