The backbone of Italian Chianti, the Sangiovese grape was introduced to Australia by the CSIRO in the late 1960's and first commercially championed by Coriole Vineyards in McLaren Vale where it was planted in 1985 with the aim of being a contrasting style to the region's signature variety, Shiraz. There are now around 200 Australian vineyards experimenting with the varietal. The 'Il Briccone' (meaning 'The Rogue') is a blend of approximately 65% Shiraz and 35% Sangiovese.
An excellent example of the blend.
Very deep, practically opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Top note of dark cherry, spice, plum and blackberry with liquorice end note. The structure is balanced, the two varietals work well with the Sangiovese providing a dark cherry component which is enhanced by fine, drying but balanced tannins. The wine is dry, but still holds its fruit quality.
