2013 Pizzini Pietra Rosa Sangiovese

Pizzini is situated on the red soils of the King Valley, in Victoria's North East. They produce a wide range of Italian varietals alongside many of the standards produced in Australia. Considered by many to be a benchmark for this varietal, here in Australia.

A bit smokey and savory with plenty of raspberry, cherry, and a touch of anise on the nose. Lovely fine, dusty tanning stick around for a good amount of time and are not drying or astringent in any way. Great varietal expression. An excellent food wine. Pairs perfectly with pizza.
