La Gita "Etrurian" Sangiovese

93 Points - 2022 Halliday Wine Companion
Bronze - 2022 Royal Adelaide Wine Show

Tasting Notes: 
A complex and savoury aromatic profile is underpinned by dark cherry, spice and earthy/leathery influences. The palate is full and rounded, textured and long with well integrated oak, displaying the hallmark structure and tannin profile expected from this variety.

Vineyard Information:
The premium Sangiovese fruit was sourced from the Seaview sub-region of McLaren Vale. The vines are approximately 20 years old and grown on ‘hungry ground’, ideal for producing low yielding and concentrated Sangiovese fruit.

Winemaking Notes: 
Hand-picked and 100% destemmed, without whole bunches included, cold soaked at 8C for 10 days before being allowed to warm naturally to begin fermentation. A long slow fermentation followed with over 20 days on skins before being pressed off to oak barrels of which 40% were new French. The wine was matured on press lees for 20 months before being racked off to a blend of 100% Sangiovese. The wine was then bottled without any finings or filtration.

Alcohol: 14.5% b/v
Production: 334 six packs

94 Points - 2023 Halliday Wine Companion
90 Points - 2022 Australian Single Vineyard Wine Show

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson in colour, with perfumed red cherry spice and plum fruit aromas. A fresh and vibrant medium to full bodied palate is full of flavour and intensity, finishing long with well assimilated oak.  This delicious wine will reward medium to long term cellaring.
