Nice bright crisp slightly oily aromatics, intense but also friendly. Soft round generous but full texture, mouth- filling and bold fresh fruit, good weight without fat or sweetness.
Nero d’Avola 2012
Cherry ripe, dark earthy red fruit sweetness, raspberry muesli bar. Very light soft and a bit thin, consistent with bouquet. Showing some nice savoury notes but a little out of balance.
Nice bright dark fright but some sharpness and hints of floral elements. Full fruit but on the sharp side, long and persistent acids, good lines and expressiveness, could possibly do with a bit more fruit.
Light bright colour. Classic aromatics, raspberry and tomato, juicy bright and fresh. Soft full fresh, intense but clean and bright, possibly a touch warm. Extremely adaptable with food and also pleasing to many palates.
Vita Reserve Sangiovese 2009
Dark and oaky, more like Shiraz in character, international winemaking nose. Depth character weight and extension, soft round but appreciated acids. A much more premium wine, certainly hallmarks of Australia on it.
Tight and talcy, intense red fruits. Very powerful and intense expression but not heavy aggressive or cloying, explosive fruit and tannin with balanced alcohol, nothing getting in the way.
