2022 Fighting Gully Road Sangiovese
The 2022 Sangiovese is 95% Sangiovese, 5% Colorino. The wine was then matured in predominately Italian-coopered large casks.
Savoury nuances of dried herbs and dark cherry combine to create a complex nose. Fine tannins and acidity combine with ripe fruit to produce a medium-full bodied palate with persistent flavour. The 2022 Sangiovese is a medium bodied wine, savoury and textural, with a beautiful line of fine-grained tannins and acidity running through the palate. The wine delivers enticing aromas of sour cherry and plum, with nuances of dried herb.
“Classic spiced cherries, wild herbs, cassis and red licorice notes with bright acidity. Ripe and well composed on the palate, it offers fine sinewy tannins and lingering, juicy dark fruits with a lick of pepperiness to close – 94 points.” Jeni Port for Halliday Wine Companion (2021 vintage).
