Pizzini Wines 2019 Nonna Gisella Sangiovese 2019 (12 Bottles) King Valley

by Winestock

$250.00 GST Included

AUSTRALIA WIDE SHIPPING INCLUDED

Named after Alfred’s grandmother, this is a medium bodied wine – warm and humble just like its namesake. Aromas of lightly spiced plums and cherries lead to hints of chocolate, leather and lovely savoury characters. This easy drinking Sangiovese is generous and full flavoured with soft tannins.

The winemaking involves a selection of techniques from cold maceration to maintain the fruit weight and freshness, and hot fermentation to add that typical Pizzini style to the wine. This wine is aged in a mixture of large format oak barrels and barriques with some batches aged in stainless steel tanks to maintain vibrancy and freshness.

Description

Pizzini are makers of Italian wine varieties and are based in King Valley, Victoria. The King Valley has established itself as the home of Italian grape varieties in Australia.

The shallow, rocky soils on the gently undulating slopes make perfect sites for Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. While the more fertile zones along the valley floor leading to the King River grow fragrant Brachetto and crisp Prosecco. The wines are made by Joel Pizzini, the vineyards managed by Alfred Pizzini.

About the Pizzini Family
Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini built Pizzini Wines based on their passions and their commitment to family and Pizzini’s Italian heritage. Their winemaking dream began in 1978 when they planted the first vines on the property, then in 1994 the first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.

Today Alfredo and Katrina’s four adult children Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business alongside them.
