Canto | Sangiovese Lagrein
As a song is created from the blend of notes, rhythm and love. Our Canto is our favourite blend of grapes to create the perfect melody to kick back on a Sunday with Nona’s favourite pasta and relax with family and friends, it’s impressively awesome. Go on give it a try. Cin Cin!
The Sangiovese is fermented in 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to 12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a melange with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
Light-bright purple red. Peppercorn spice and hints of cedar with warm aromas of plums and red cherries. An elegant nose driven by the fruit. Rich, juicy and brambly red fruits on entry. Some fresh pencil shavings and dried spice character. Lush round cherry and plums middle palate, with a hint of raisins, all tempered with some light but typical Sangiovese savoury tannin. A medium bodied fruity finish with savoury, peppery overtones that taper out in the mouth with persistent long-grained fruit tannin. Malt, cedar and intense black cherry... minutes later, the flavour still lingers.
This wine will drink great now, especially with anything off the chargrill or out of a wood oven, it should cellar as well as previous vintages
