de Bortoli (Australia) Windy Peak Sangiovese 2005
Bright, briar and cherry-focused nose, with nicely punchy fruit and a lovely red fruit glossiness. Theres quite a lot of vanillin, creamy oak, but it sits quite nicely with the fruit. On the palate theres a nice hint of something tobacco, leathery and animal, in amongst some really good berry fruit. This is balanced and chewy, with low tannins and moderate acidity, but enough of each to add structure. 7.29, Oddbins with 20% off if you buy 12, and also in Laithwaites at 74.99 per case of 12
