2017 Angullong Fossil Hill Sangiovese

Wine Companion, James Halliday 2019: 96/100 This is a totally delicious sangiovese, with bright red cherry fruits, gentle tannins and a long finish…”

Sangiovese is one of Italy’s most popular varieties. We have a number of types (clones) of Sangiovese vines in the vineyard that are maturing well, having been planted close to 20 years ago. The Angullong ‘Fossil Hill’ Sangiovese is a medium bodied wine with lifted and vibrant aromas of violets, blueberries and dried herbs. The elegant flavours of blueberry, sour cherry and spice are complemented by savoury herbal complexity and soft balanced tannins. This is a wine to enjoy with traditional Italian fare, including ragu, pizza or antipasti.
