Pizzini, Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 2013
Translates to ‘Red Stone’ and named after the rich ironstone soils where the grapes are grown. This smells of just ripe cherries, a lick of cola, some earthy bluestone rocks and aniseed/fennel. Flavour brings sour cherry, cola and that slightly herby aniseed flavour that gives a savoury, almost rustic edge. With plenty of drying tannins, this is a wine made to celebrate food.
