2018 Persephone Wines Sangiovese
We first met Rachel Signer at Rootstock last year. She was there representing her magazine Terre (now Pipette). She made these wines with Anton Van Klopper at his winery in the Basket Range, using the same vineyards he uses. Notes are form her..: The Sangio was our last pick; we harvested it at the beginning of April. From the beginning, the juice had more tannic character than the other varietal wines, and it was also at some point a touch reductive in the barrel; although that went away before bottling, I still though it was a good idea to use nomacorc for this wine. The Sangio is the most complex of my wines and could benefit from ageing in a cellar environment. I'd enjoy it with pasta bolognese.
