2018 Giovanni Armani Giorgio Rosso del Giorno
Notes from our favourite Italians..: An enthusiastic, vibrant and devoutly Catholic red wine for drinking with il diavolo and pepperoni pizza (Dominos probably) in bed. Cherries, plums, cigar box spice and dry tannin. Yummo. 100% Sangiovese, 100% Stupefacente. Sangiovese from the Hoffmann vineyard in the Barossa Valley picked early for freshness and natural acidity. One portion saw an extended maceration for deeper flavour and softer tannin, the remaining half was pressed earlier for brighter fruit and “tannino croccante”. Sent to old oak to get a little plumper and increase the “quality of flavour”. Una piccola quantità di zolfo aggiunto.
