Rich in Italian heritage, Pizzini was established by Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini in 1978 when they planted the first vines on the property, however, it wasn’t until 1994 that the first wine was produced under the Pizzini label. With over 22 vintages behind them they are one of the countries leading exponents of Sangiovese, Pietra Rossa the new name adorning this well known wine. The term Italian for red stone is a reference to the soils that the Sangiovese fruit comes from.
Well sculptured yet seductive, this is a superb example of Sangiovese.
This wine was matured in a combination of 25% Nevers, 15% Fontainebleau, 30% Allier, 30% Troncais oak which was medium toasted, 20% new oak, for a period of 14 months.
Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a red hue. Spicy red currant and red cherry aromas emerge out of the glass with a fragrant herb overlay trailed by subtle tobacco and earth notes. Flooding the mouth is a delicious mix of red cherry and red currant fruits which are underpinned by bright, edgy acidity. Elements of dried herbs, spicy tobacco and light earth then flow onto the finish. Chalky but balanced tannins with a long, beautifully structured and highly savoury aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
