2016 Pinocchio Sangiovese
The distinguishing character of sangiovese is that of savouriness followed by bitter (morello) cherries - traits which are more than abundant in our 2015 Pinocchio version. There is no “sweetness” on the mid palate such as you might expect from Pinot Noir. The finish is admirably long and tart with that refreshing spine of acidity and firm drying tannins. Goes so well with many meat Italian dishes or soft cow’s milk cheese.
