- Closure: Cork
This is an unusual wine in that its contents are largely a mystery. 5% consists of Sangiovese whilst the other 95% of the wine is an unknown cultivar. How could this come about you ask? The answer is simple. The wrong rootstock was delivered from the nursery and the mistake was not discovered until many years later! The folks at Stone Bridge are working to identify the variety but this may be some time away. The name "Coniglio Nero" comes from the Italian meaning "black rabbit" and refers to the black rabbits found in and around the vineyard.
Opaque black crimson colour with very deep crimson hue. The nose displays earthy, plum notes with hints of blackpepper, truffle and spice. Quite Shiraz like, however, the palate seems to have a Zinfandel type of flavour - particularly accentuated by the firmish tannins. Palate flavours of earth, plum and liquorice with just a hint of blackberry and mint. Fine grained, dry, firmish tannins. Well balanced, with a very long aftertaste of truffle, mint, plum and liquorice. Cellar 3-4 years. (2005-2006) Alc./Vol.13%
